You should come here after visiting the Grand Palace. Finding out how Thai people making clothes and silk and queen's contribution into fashion were interesting. But my most favorite time is trying on traditional Thai costume. It is so lovely to wear and take photo. The souvenir shop also sells some pretty textile clothes but if you have free time,... More

This museum is part of the Grand Palace complex. A small entry fee is payable and is accessed by stairway or lift. The first part of the museum is devoted to the Queen's gowns worn during official occasions. The intricate bead work has to be seen to be believed. Could not find an answer to one of my questions -... More

This museum is small, but included in your admission to the Grand Palace (and inside the Grand Palace). You can view the 8 types of traditional Thai dress as well as see the Queens dresses over the years. You can also learn how she helped the Thai economy with supporting the textile industry! Don't miss the chance to try on... More

Very, very cool! It was a nice break from the heat. It is small, but it's easy to make it part of the visit to the Palace. Saw an interesting movie on the making silk while cooling down.

This is inside the grand palace and the 500 BHT you pay includes this museum. I guess you may buy the ticket separately for 100BHT but it is not worth it. It is perhaps a 200 square meter place. If you have already paid for the grand palace, then perhaps you can spend half an hour in this building (which... More

Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles is located within the Grand Palace, and the ticket to the museum is included in the price of the Grand Palace admission. If you want to visit only this museum, there is an entrance fee that you pay at the museum. The museum has four exhibition rooms displaying the revival of the traditional Thai silk... More

The museum is a nice look at the development of the national costume under the current queen, and has some beautiful examples of her outfits impressively displayed and explained, in addition to her development work. The slideshow is also very cool of her looking super glamorous in her state appearances over the years. Finally, the gift shop was a nice... More

Nice ride among the silk history and the creation of the national costume. It is somewhat centered on the work of the queen, her outfits, her help to rural communities, how great she is. Inside the Grand Palace complex, no additional fee required.

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.
