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

A bit away from the main downtown area but was easy to go there. A great selection of interesting modern art.

Assume that the taxi drivers at Mo Chit will be clueless. So, take with you a map on your smartphone or print one out in Thai. Its actually very easy to reach and its nearby. With tip the cab ride will be 100 baht. The museum will call a cab for you for the return. From the main road MOCA... More

This museum is a must. Every floor is exciting and reveals artists well worth seeing. The architecture of the museum is very appealing as well. It is a pleasure to stroll about. The guidance at every floor is very good. Be careful when you are driving from the local road and to the main road returning towards Bangkok. It is... More

Was a trip well worth the 30 min drive up from Siam Paragon. The place quite beautilfully designed and the exhibits (on all 5 floors) are all very nicely put together. Best of all, and probably due to the location, the place was not crowded when I visited in the afternoon (around 12ish), which allowed me to wander peacefully through... More

A beautifully presented gallery, with wonderful paintings in a lovely building. However, quite difficult to find - sky train to mo chit and then a taxi for about 15 minutes. Small cafe with very well priced coffee but only simple pastries. There is parking.

The museum has a lot of wonderful artworks. It was very modern 5 story building. We really the beautiful artworks for four hours. We are sure that it was the best thing we did during our stay in Bangkok. The transportation is a little bit complicated to visit there. The simple way is to go to Mo Chit station by... More

You need to travel to visit MOCA but it's well worth a 30 minute taxi ride. MOCA is one of the most exciting new museums anywhere in the world. The building is architecturally interesting and the permanent exhibits show that there is a tremendous amount of important new art coming out of Thailand. Highly recommended!
