We learned so much about the design and the production of Thai Silk and the major contribution the Queen made in her lifetime. Extremely impressive.

We wandered in here after touring the Grand Palace and Temple of the Emerald Buddha--the ticket's part of the price of admission. Go here to cool off, use the bathroom, and learn about the queen, Thai silk, Thai theatre and see her dresses. Go out around the corner and grab some Thai iced tea afterwards.

Ok so we had a busy time at the Grand Palace therefore it was an unexpected treat to enter this air conditioned building before leaving. Your entry ticket also covers entrance to this amazing display of recreated dance costumes and the 'Fit for a Queen' exhibition of couture clothing designed for HM Queen Sirikit's grand tour of USA and Europe...

What a nice surprise! An amazing museum, new, well organized, with beautiful outfits from a very glamorous queen, some from european stylists, others created at Thailand, from the thread, usually silk, to the suít/dress. Dont miss it! Its included on your ticket, its cool, and isnt crowded. Do you need more?

Great place if you are a fan of fashion and beautiful clothes. My wife was going crazy by looking at all the wonderfull clothes. Piece of advice for the men, bring your phone to play a game because the lady will spend allot of time admiring it all.

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.

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.
