  • One of the easiest, most accessible and most convenient public art spaces one can go to around downtown Bangkok. Really good place to take out a visiting friend or your date to when you guys want to do something low-key and affordable. Plus, the place offers free admission. There's cafes and small stores on the lower floors, while the art center is on the upper floors. You can't go inside without stashing your bags at the lockers they provide for free (you'll have to pay 100B deposit for a key). Make sure to bring some cash for that. The exhibit as a whole is alright, albeit some parts are kind of boring, like the art exhibit that showcases artwork and pieces of local contemporary art students/amateurs. They aren't even paintings or drawings - rather just installations made out of all sorts of materials. The ones that you'll pay more attention to are the photo and painting exhibits that go through rotations every other month or so.
  • excellent stop during my first night visit to Bangkok. Be sure to check the hours before visiting. It was open on Sunday until 9pm but it was closed on Monday. Plan on spending a minimum of an hour here as there are 7 levels worth of artwork. On average, I'd say that two hours is sufficient time to get through the bulk of the artwork here. Free to enter and plenty of little shops
  • Wonderful center with free entry hosting a diverse collection of bachelor/master students art and a (more permanent) collection on the top floor. If you want to visit the topmost floors, you'll have to leave your bags in the locker room. There are several cafés spread over the bottom floors, a few galleries, book shops and a cinema. They were screening student films at the time, and it was also free entry. The people are very kind and the art is of good quality. Recommend to take a few hours off to visit this, for all art lovers!
  • Definitely a must visit if you love art and are in Bangkok. Entrance is free and there are many levels of different art to explore. During our visit, we were lucky enough to see amazing Local Thai artists works as well as 1 exhibit from Italy. We spent quite a while just seeing each exhibit. Really enjoyed our time here. Will come again the next time we are in town!
  • Always worth a visit. They usually have a free exhibition and other free art to look at. The shops are also artsy and interesting. The upper level houses the actual exhibitions (which cost money). If you like arts and cultural places you should definitely check this place out!
