The building was nice and in the best location with a connection straight from BTS to level 3. But the exibition was on the 8th floor. The special exibition started on Wednesday and we made a visit on the following Saturday. The elevator was under maintenance, the escalator was not working, so we had to walk up.

Probably chose a bad week to go for exhibits, but the building itself is a work of art inside, and a respite from the heat of Bangkok.

This Art centre is a nice building, there was an exhibition of the King and full of respect. There is also a shop that they showed you how to make soap, they teach you step by step and those soaps are for students. There is another ice cream shop which they made special ice cream, the look is like deep... More

We came across this place as we exited MBK. There are lots of art pieces throughout the centre and admission fee is free. You could also go into some exhibit at the very top floor, but you aren't allow to bring your belongings with you. There are lockers for rental.

I was looking forward to visiting this museum but I was a bit disappointed. Maybe it was just the wrong month to go since Thailand was still mourning for the King. There were huge photos of the King and collages. There weren't much artworks that day and the ones that were there not as unique or interesting. I love visiting... More

If you are looking for something unusual or unique, this is a must. I didn't know what to expect. I was happy with the vast array of arts and crafts you can purchase. Some of the paintings are incredible. I went back a second time and got a charcoal sketch of my wife. Poor wife, I dragged her there after... More

This is one of the few museums I know of that will let you take pictures inside, as long as you keep the flash off. I wish the facility was utilized more than it is but I guess you only have so much art that is available.
