The museum’s vision is to share the private collection that Jean Michel Beurdeley and his late wife Patsri Bunnag, together with their son Eric Bunnag Booth, have built over the last 30 years. The collection includes seminal works from Thai and regional contemporary artists, as well as discoveries they have made of young and emerging artists in both the Kingdom and neighbouring countries.
