As I said I am not really an art lover but I enjoyed walking through the MOCA and taking a good look at the paintings and sculptures.

This museum is brand new - it just opened two years ago. The whole building, the little cafe, and the small park are extremely peaceful & quiet. The staff was very polite & helpful.

The building has 5 floors, so you can easily spend 3-4 hours there without getting bored.

What I especially liked is the access to the car park, which is designed as a secret door. Without the help of a security guard, you would never find your car again. But luckily they have one, to magically open the door in the wall for you. Simsalabim. :-)

Good to visit and good for students too. But please control your voice while visiting museum as students group with teachers and the staffs should control them by making noise.

MOCA is definitely not '798' in Beijing. It is pop, it is kitsch, and it is privately owned, exhibiting mostly the mainstream and 'approved' art.

It is non-political in the country where everything now seems to be related to politics. It is decorative: typical form over substance.

It is not easy to get there by public transportation. The stuff is unfriendly. So if you do not have too much time and want to see at least one major culture/art centre in Bangkok, go to BACC instead.

For those who are interested in seeing how commercialism destroyed the culture (in Thailand, but also in other places like Indonesia), MOCA is the must see.
