The museum was sadly closed for renovations when I visited but I really enjoyed the shop. As a textile collector, I particularly loved the bolts of silk from which you can buy meters of fabric (it's a bit expensive, as one would expect of handwoven silk of this quality). The colors were unbelievable and the saleslady was really helpful.

Beautiful hand made silk. Very nice place, and a great initiative from Queen Sirikit. It is very nice that Thailand is giving attention to the traditional handwork and promoting it.

I was visiting the Vimnamek Teak Palace and after that tour I wandered the grounds of the Dusit palace complex where there are several other buildings to tour. This building is one of those in the complex. The museum covers the textiles produced by the various regions of Thailand. The Queen is prominently featured in many of the displays demonstrating...

Interesting and beautiful - and the prices are about 1/2 of what you will pay for similar items in the Jim Thompson house. LOVED it here!

Really nice collection of all of the queen's dresses that she had worn throughout her reign. Unfortunately pictures are not allowed to be taken here. Another added plus is that it's air conditioned!

Was a free stop with the grand palace museums so took a much needed air conditioned break. Pretty short though, so fine to skip if you have other things to do.

I initially wanted to skip this but am extremely glad I didn't as the clothes on show are absolutely fascinating - what's best is that there are photos of the Queen wearing the outfits and even a video showing how one can put on the clothes as intricate tying techniques are involved! There is also a interactive activity room where... More

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.
