Although the name of the museum indicates the history of textiles not only in Thailand but in SE Asia as well, there is also a nice collection of gowns the Queen wore to different occasions over the years. This is located on the grounds of the Grand Palace so include this museum on your list of stops.

The collection is vast and impressive, a powerful reminder of the meticulous artfulness and creativity of textile makers across the great variety of ethnic groups of Thailand. One should also know that the Queen has been a very active promoter of the preservation of the kingdom's textile traditions, and of Thai silk in international fashion.

The museum is located at the right of The Grand Palace's entrance. Come here on your way out of the Palace tour as it is very laid back and relaxing after the combine tour of Palace and the Temple of Emerald Buddha. You can see the outfits the queen wore and the designers' philosophy behind the designs. The place is... More

Your ticket to the Grand Palace includes a visit to Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles. I recommend going. You'll find out more about the Queen's efforts to rejuvenate the amazing, intricate costumes for Khon theater, which mimic the clothing of royalty. You'll also see the outfits that the Queen wore in her visits to Europe and the rest of the... More

This little treasure is included with your admission to the Royal Palace. Viewing Queen Sirikit's gowns designed by Balmain (Paris) from the 60's was very interesting. If you are a fan of Project Runway, this is a must see for you.

A normal and small museum that showcases royal textile and dress. A good place to cool down and hang out after spending hot day touring Grand Palace and its buildings within the compound.

Our guide brought us to the Queen's museum that we would probably have been missing by ourselves, beautiful museum on textile and fashion, I was not expecting to find Pierre Balmain's fine work that fits perfectly to Queen Sirikit.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
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.
