For instance, if I want to say:

I want to see traditional and modern culture

I would try to use:

近代的{きんだいてき}で伝統的{でんとうてき}な文化{ぶんか}を見たい。

But does this imply the culture I want to see is simultaneously modern and traditional? Or could it mean I want to see both modern and traditional variations of culture as intended?

近代的で伝統的な文化を見たい sounds to me like you want to see culture which is simultaneously modern and traditional. To say you want to see both modern culture and traditional culture, I would say:

近代的な文化と伝統的な文化が見たい。
近代的な文化や伝統的な文化が見たい。
近代的な文化も伝統的な文化も見たい。
or maybe... 近代的な文化も見たいし、伝統的な文化も見たい。
