“Not that impressive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Some clothes worn by the queen housed in a massive building. I was hoping for so much more. It's at the end of the Grand Palace visit and as it's part of it you may as well go in as the air con is wonderful! In my opinion, that's the only reason to go in.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I'm in the clothing trade so this has a special interest for me but it's well worth a visit. It shows some of the amazing outfits worn by the Queen throughout her reign, some of the early 1950's ones are fantastic & it also shows a bit about the silk industry & what she has done to promote & help it.

“Royal fashion!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

included in the ticket for grand palace and wat phra kaew, this museum is interesting with all the gorgeous outfits worn by the Queen, lots of information about Thai textiles and stuff. And the best part, after spending so much time in the boiling hot Sun, this place is a cool relief!!!!
