When you are on a visit to The Grand Palace, you can spare some time nearly one hour or so for this. It has a collection of Queen's dresses worn by her on various occasions.

Tucked just inside the main gate on the right is a delightful exhibition of some of the Queen's dresses she wore on her overseas trip to Europe and the USA. She used the best of Thai craftsmen and women to weave silken material which French designers such as Balmain made into beautiful gowns with Thai style. Well presented but unfortunately... More

Thank you for reviewing on Tripadvisor. The another half of the exhibition will open soon in June. The exhibition at our museum will renew every two years approximately. If you come back to Thailand, don't miss our museum! More

This attraction can hardly be called a museum. if encompasses a lot of official gowns used by the Queen, demonstrating that she is committed to use clothes that honor the Thai traditional way of dressing. Ok, but is not a remarkably attraction. The building is beautiful - modern, with a very strong air conditioner (in Thailand it is important. It... More

It would be easy to miss this little museum as it is just inside the main gate to the Grand Palace but don't miss it - it is very interesting and helped me to understand a little more of the Silk industry of Thailand and the important input from the queen to reviving a national industry.

Especially since it's included in your ticket purchase anyway. Beautifully restored building with an interesting exhibit and a lovely gift shop. Not at all crowded compared to the palace grounds.

If you like seeing beautiful clothes and textiles, you will enjoy this museum. Very nicely done. As a plus, the gift shop was lovely, with some nice items made of silk, purses, weavings, etc. We really enjoyed our visit and wished that we could have stayed in the gift shop longer.

The Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles is located next to the entrance to the Grand Palace. One can easily walk past it on the way to the "main" attractions. However, it is worth a visit. Not only is it nicely air-conditioned but the exhibits are beautiful. Various outfits, tablecloths, and other textile products are on display. The museum shop has... More

We were on a terrific Thai Private Tour Guide day tour in Bangkok and our guide expertly took us to the outdoors temples first. Then, when the heat was a bit much, Am, our guide, stepped us into this museum. We were the only ones here, and enjoyed the cold air inside, the terrific restrooms, and a break from temple... More
