“Stunning museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is a relatively new museum and the displays are excellent. At the end of the visit you have a real understanding of Thai silk and the beautiful designs of materials and wardrobes of Queen Sirlkit. Of particular interest to us were the stories connected with the Queen and her revival of the weaving culture in many villages. The display of her many dresses is very tasteful and elegant. This new museum is a very nice addition to the Grand Palace and should not be missed when you are visiting Bangkok.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

This is definitely worth your time when you visit the Grand Palace/Emerald Buddha...even if you're tired. First, the A/C is refreshing after a day in the heat of Bangkok. Ok...I love fashion, and I thoroughly enjoyed the textiles here. Discovering the process and resources that went into developing the talents of the Thai people and of developing and weaving Thai silk helps one appreciate so much the culture and talents of the Thai's...as well as the value of the textiles here. I loved it!

“Lovely informative”

Besides beautiful textiles, you will pick up some modern history and high couture, too
A peaceful meander in a lovingly renovated building on the Palace grounds. Finish ur palace tour, turn in the headset and do this (part of your admissions ticket) as you exit

“Good Collection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

After finishing our visit to The Grand Palace in Bangkok, we were taken to this museum where textiles used to be worn by the Queen of Thailand were displayed. The museum is in two floors. It was explained beautifully by visual mannequin display as well as audio-visual display as to how the typical thai dress one can wear.
On the ground floor, one section was occupied by visitors (Men and Women alike) to try on them the Thai dress and get themselves photographed for their memories.
Gift shop in the museum has many varieties of dresses, cloths, ties, scarfs etc of good quality thai silk. The price range is hight , but the money goes for a good cause- it promots handicrafts by rural thai women .
Entry fee is included in your 400 baht ticket to the Grand Palace, and one should not miss the opportunity to see it and also take your thai dress photo.
