16 Great Art Galleries in Bangkok

Bangkok Art Galleries and Museums

Bangkok has a small but very vibrant contemporary art scene. Since most of the city's small private or commercial galleries promote Thai and regional artists, a day of gallery-hopping is a great way of experiencing the local arts scene. 

You’ll soon discover that the city's art galleries and museums are pretty much scattered all over town, though several large art complexes in the city centre offer an all-integrated art experience. If you would like to immerse yourself in Bangkok's contemporary art scene, plan ahead by checking out our list of great art galleries in Bangkok.
