Lonely Planet review

The museum displays temporary exhibitions of contemporary Thai and international art. Local artists, such as Tanakarn Songlin and Tiwawan Srisombat, were the best of the bunch we saw, bringing everyday activity to life with poignancy and joy. Although the temporary exhibits can be a bit hit and miss (there's no permanent collection), we saw a lot of creativity in the works on display. The exhibits in the university grounds outside the museum shop are permanent – we like the crab-creature made of old wood and rusted metal. The museum is near the intersection of Th Suthep and Th Klorng Chonprathan.
