One of my favouite art spaces in Bangkok, this houses some of the best pieces from contemporary artists both Thai and international. If you enjoy art, want to see something different and have a couple of hours to spare, check this place out.

Definitely a "must go" if you're into unique artsy stuff. Architecture is also superb and the exhibit "Passage Across the Universe will blow you away. There is also a cozy cafe you can lounge on after going around the entire place.
