A fantastic experience and well worth the trip. The museum is modern with beautiful works of art for every taste. A thoroughly enjoyable trip. Make sure you leave enough time for this. There are many floors and, should you enjoy it as much as I did, it will take time. Once the BTS is finished access should be easier but... More

Not boring place. There is quite small amount of non-Thai-national museums in Bangkok and this one is surprisingly amazing. We've spent around two hours inside and could stay more but museum is closing at 5 p.m. It's easy to get there by moto taxi from Chatuchak.

I've visited most of the major art and modern art museums in major cities such as London, NY, Paris etc and smaller cities such as San Francisco, Budapest, Florence etc. This museum is much smaller than similar in those bigger cities but still really worth a visit, the Thai artists have some beautiful and interesting work. You can see it... More

This is probably one of the best organized, professionally managed and built museums in Thailand and a must, if you like modern art. The building itself is great and the layout is nice. The art rooms are very well done. The museum covers a wide range of modern Thai artists. There is a small cafe and shop in the entrance... More

Nice to see what happen in the city modern art building. Nice air- condition as well to hide when really hot weather. Chance to get coffee and small snacks inside. Nice view for train lines outside.

Been planning to visit this place for ages but my plans never pushed through as it's a bit out of a way, and there aren't any BTS stations close by. I finally got to go during my last visit to Bangkok, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the place. We took an Uber straight to the museum (it... More
