Museum of Contemporary Art

The Museum of Contemporary Art  in Bangkok ot MOCA is located about 10 minutes driver or 50 minutes walk from the MRT Phaholyothin Station in Bangkok. The long history of Thai arts is displayed at the Museum of Contemporary Art as its main reason for having been established has been to celebrate and appreciate the great favor of King Rama 9 and to honor “Father of Thai Contemporary Arts” or Professor Silpa Bhirasri.

The MOCA has had many good reviews and it can be very difficult to find so look at the map below so you know into which direction to head when you get out of the MRT subway station. MOCA is about 6 floors high and has many people to direct you throughout the exhibitions they have on display. There are a number of collections of artwork from religious to the more abstract. Contemporary art is not for everyone but it is well worth a visit to see Thai culture displayed in the countries artwork. It location is a bit odd and hidden away but by looking at the map you will know when to find it as long as you can get to a subway station. The building from the outside is very impressive and makes for great photo opportunities.
