    To visit and study
    Beautiful space filled with lovely artwork, artist stalls and a quiet art library. Art library provides free wifi codes and a serene place to read and reflect. Lots of clean washrooms. And best of all, it's a free activity! Highly recommend it.

    A quiet stop
    I enjoyed our visits here. The highlighted artwork when we were there were photos (?) with kind of motherhood-ish quotes so we actually didn’t pay them much attention (even though they took up the entire three floors of gallery space). Instead, we enjoyed browsing the shops. What I liked about the space is the vastness of it, and how it could hold different events while still having enough space for shops and stalls featuring diverse arts and crafts. As the space is created by an Artists’ Collective, it shows how good planning, cooperation and support can make such an enviable space. It is also very clean and has an overall vibe of restfulness which is much appreciated after the bustle of the neighboring malls.

    Great museum (and free!)
    Local art, there are several "mini-exhibitions" on each floor, different topics. Maybe not a lot, but enough, we visited all exhibitions in aroud 3 hours or so. I enjoyed the jewelry shops there (relatively cheap) - bought some handmade stuff.

    Free art museum with cafes, shops, and library.
    This center was FREE. No admission charge. It's near MBK and Siam Discovery malls. It connects via pedestrian walkway on the upper floors or enter at the street level. It's air conditioned. Inside there were several floors of lovely and interesting artwork, photographs -- plus small cafes, library, and shops (e.g. guitar/guitar lessons). There was a gift shop at the top floor and a few vendors selling postcards, paintings, bags, jewelry, books, etc. near the escalators. This is a sort of place you want to check out if it's too hot outside (or rainy) and you don't want to go to another mall or be in a crowd. It was quiet with a few student visitors when we visited on a Saturday. We took our time visiting each floor and appreciated the art that was displayed.

    An art gallery that has a collection of many works.
    It is a source of art works and exhibitions, whether it be paintings or photographs. It is a peaceful area, not chaotic. Suitable for relaxation and a place to heal the mind. There is a restaurant and cafe. This place can be both a place for learning and traveling. There are many opportunities to hold exhibitions for students to come and learn. I highly recommend going because you will gain knowledge and relaxation.

We both took the BTS and got off at Siam Station. When we reached our destination, we stopped for food a little closer to the station. After finishing our meal, we traveled to Siamscape. to enter special education We studied for over 3 hours. After class, we stopped for lunch at MBK, which is not far from Siam. Once your stomach is full, it's time to go shopping. Which is the girls' favorite activity after shopping. The two of them planned to visit the art gallery. It is very close to MBK. You can easily walk from the second floor of the mall. This was the first time for both of us to have been to the art gallery. We saw various works of art and took photos to keep as souvenirs. We also receive inspiration and insights from the artist's work. These things make us want to recommend everyone passing through the Siam area to visit this art gallery as well.

Good experience. It's atleast 4 story building that houses almost all forms of arts and crafts from Thailand. They also host fairs. It's adjacent to metro station. There is no entree fee. No need to buy tickets.

Free, good way to kill a few hours. Entertaining. Air-conditioned. Fun. We could make leaves out of clay and play with a light box.

Looking online I wasn't sure about the current exhibitions, but I enjoyed two (only excluding the war photographer's work - too gritty for my sensibility), and eating at and strolling around this vast, well-designed and air-conditioned space. Lots of cheerful students present, and a wide variety of smaller galleries. Close to Jim Thompson House and the many, many shops of the Siam Square complexes. A great showcase for Thai artists and a pleasant 1-2 hour visit.
