Bangkok Art and Culture Center

Opened in early 2009, the Bangkok Art and Culture Center is located close to the Siam Discovery Shopping Mall and minutes away from the MBK Center. It showcases a variety of art works including international and Thai contemporary art.

The Building and History

After the opening, Bangkok Art and Culture Center stood empty and deserted for several months and no one was quite sure what to do with this building. Luckily, several galleries and private shops were opened and the center finally came to life. The building features a public library, theaters, music studios, and a spiral staircase that leads guests to art galleries. The main galleries are located on upper floors, while designer boutiques and shops can be found on the first three floors.

Art Market and Admission

An art market is held every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in front of the building. It attracts many locals, as well as a number of tourists. The easiest way to get to the Bangkok Art and Culture Center is using the Skytrain elevated train system and the admission to the center is free.
