As a textile lover, I was so happy that our guide recommended this museum. There is so much information about historic Thai dress and how the current queen, in her younger years, re-invented traditional Thai women's dress with a modern flair. In her younger years, in the 1960s, she rivaled (or surpassed) Jackie Kennedy for her flair for clothing and... More

More about royal pomp. The variety of exhibits is fairly underwhelming. Go there if you have too much time in your hand....

I confess to being interested only in the various garbs that Queen Sirikit has worn and so I ignored all else within this museum. In terms of fashion (very Thai oriented - naturally), these garments are utterly superb. The craftsmanship is beyond reproach. The styles would do any woman proud. So feminine, so elegant and the beauty is that apart... More

The building is beautiful and the clothes inside are great. We really enjoyed viewing the photographs of the King and Queen wearing the clothes in the displays.

Small but exquisite collection of the gowns and dresses of Queen Sirikit. A bit of a hassle though because I was given conflicting instructions on where to buy my tickets. Had to walk back and forth in the scorching sun. [That was a great excuse those to enjoy an iced capuccino at the kiosk behind the gift shop.] It was... More

Located on the Grand Palace grounds near the entrance, this museum and store is small but it offers some very lovely and high quality items. We did not look at the exhibits - but we did buy some of the inexpensive, colourful pom-pom key chains to hang off our knapsacks, and some really nice designer-type T-shirts as well. By purchasing...

Situated in the grand Palace complex this museum is well worth visiting on the same day. It contains lots of Queen Sirikit!s beautifull outfits that she has worn on special occasions. No pictures or video are allowed so enjoy yourself looking at the clothes and reading about how she helped revive the Thai textile industry. She has been quite a... More

Long story short - although there are no signs inside prohibiting taking pictures, if you do take it, they will not ask you not to do it again, nor will they even ask you to delete it - thats not what they are after, they entrap you to rob you off 5000 Baht!!! No excuses - if you dont have... More

If I remember, it is at the entrance of Grand Palace. Nothing great but still worth visitng as it is free of cost. Anyway you will be going to the palace in the later stages.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
