Museum of Contemporary Art

The Museum of Contemporary Art  in Bangkok ot MOCA is located about 10 minutes drive 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.

Museum of Contemporary Art

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. Visiting this museum was truly a valuable investment of my time and money. Despite walking for over an hour under the scorching midday sun to reach it, the experience was undeniably worthwhile.

Spread across five floors, the museum houses a diverse collection of artworks and historical treasures, each tucked away in various corners. It’s remarkable how art is tucked into virtually every nook and cranny of the museum. From art pieces near the restroom entrance to those hidden in the dimly lit corners and even at the bottom of the displays, there’s an element of surprise waiting at every turn.

Exploring this museum is like embarking on a treasure hunt, and I would strongly recommend not missing a single spot. The unexpected discoveries along the way will undoubtedly leave you amazed and enriched by the end of your visit.
