Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre

A unique meeting place for Artists

Bangkok, the city that never sleeps offers its visitor so much to see, do and taste. In its endless list of attractions, the Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre occupy an integral position. It is a modern art center, a platform to showcase the best of art, music and drama. It is not just a gathering place for artists and art lovers but a great place for everyone to relax and meet up with family and friends.

The Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre was set up in 2005 under the initiative of the former governor of Bangkok, Bhichit Rattakul. Although construction work began in 2000 it was soon halted due to the lack of funds. Construction work resumed 2005 and the cultural center was completed three years. Today, the Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre is identified as the hub of Bangkok’s thriving art scene. It is located just minutes away from many luxury hotel resorts. Many world class hotels such as the Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas is situated within easy reach.

The Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre is a fine work of architecture. Its spiral walkways and white curving façade is similar to the Guggenheim in New York. Located just a few minutes away from the National Stadium BTS, the Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre hosts many Thai and international art, music and drama displays. The 9-storey building is built in such a way that it preserves and protects the art collections from the bright daylight. The complex comprises a public library, multipurpose rooms and theatres. Ample parking space is also available onsite. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday an art market is held giving art lovers the chance to purchase stunning works of art. The Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre continue with its aim of creating new cultural resources, networking and ensuring cultural continuity.
