I love to visit museum. Although this is a textile-themes museum, I found it interesting too. But sadly most of the visitors in this museum were there for the air-conditioning after visiting the Grand Palace. The exhibition include a big range of textile aka clothes of Thailand. During my visit, it is free to visit. But some reviews and guide... More

As I was exiting from Wat Phra Kaew, I had visited the museum. It was included in the ticket with the Wat Phra Kaew. It exhibited Queen Sirikit's dresses, and how she had helped the textile makers to get what they deserve. Considering the ticket is included with Wat Phra Kaew, its very good to visit.

To be honest, the reason I went into this museum was due to the fact it has air conditioning, and I wanted to cool down after visiting the palace. However once inside I found it to be very interesting and very well done! The Queen is clearly quite a remarkable woman who has done a lot to help the thai... More

Best place to cool down after walking hours under the heat of the sun! There's no entrance fee in this museum so I suggest that you can take a short visit inside if you want to experience some cold temperature. Walking around the palace grounds is very hot. It's really nice that this museum is situated at the end part.

I would not have bothered with this attraction if it was not for free. The exhibits of Thai silk costumes were interesting. There were some demonstartions on Thai art and crafts which I enjoyed. It's worth a 30 minute detour when leaving the Grand Palace.

We went in here during our tour of the Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha. It covers the history of the textiles and the Queen's involvement in reviving and popularizing Thai textiles around the world.

Well documented history of rise of silk industry in Thailand. The museum itself is well maintained and also very good use of the Audio Video devices to the drive home the point. Also it helps to have aircon inside unlike other museums in the heat of the summer. Also contains the documentation showing the various dresses worn by the queen... More

This is a fascinating museum to visit to see the authentic dresses of the Queen. She played a significant role in preserving Thai silk designs and in helping to once again call international recognition to the quality of Thai silk. You can watch a short video to help you understand the process of making silk, read about how an authentic... More

A textile museum sounds boring and it could be. Indeed there are a lot of mannequins in fancy cloths, but there is also a lot of Thai history. Silk is at the core of Thai culture so there is much to say. The Textile Museum is usually at the end of a National Palace visit. Half the value of the... More
