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

The displays were state-of-the art for exhibits of vintage textiles & garments. I learned lots and found the museum completely impressive. Air conditioning and classy bathrooms are a plus - but it is the history and professional condition of the displays that we really appreciated!

We visited the Grand Palace and came to the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles at the very end of our visit and we were tired. Entrance is included with your ticket to the Grand Palace. You can visit the Museum of Textiles without visiting the Grand Palace, then admission is 150 baht for adults, 80 baht for seniors over 65,... More

I wonder with documentation submitted regarding this museum. Because, when we enter this museum, photograph is strictly prohibited in all of area. So I hope all of tourists who visit this museum appreciate and comply with the sign, please appreciate them. I love this museum. Lovely outfit worn by Queen Siriki with unique pattern and difficult design. Honestly I did... More

You may get a free pass to see this museum while visiting the Grand Palace. There are displays of royal garments as well as some interactive stations where you can get an idea of how the textiles are made.
