“Royal fashion!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

included in the ticket for grand palace and wat phra kaew, this museum is interesting with all the gorgeous outfits worn by the Queen, lots of information about Thai textiles and stuff. And the best part, after spending so much time in the boiling hot Sun, this place is a cool relief!!!!

“Interesting museum”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

A well planned museum, interesting to learn about the creation of the Thai national dresses by the Queen and the process of silk fabric and patterns.

“Something a bit different whilst on the temple trail.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We spent a very pleasant 45 minutes wandering through this museum. Entry was included as part of the Grand Palace ticket & the museum is in the grounds. It includes some history of silk production in Thailand & features a large number of dresses worn by Queen Sirikit in both western & traditional Thai styles. We learnt that Queen Sirikit really loves Pierre Balmain! Oh & if you need cooling down this is the place ... It's all aircon!

“Incredible Musuem”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

As a free throw in to the Palace Tour. Mostly went in because we were hot and it was air conditioned. Excellent displays, very informative. So glad we visited.

“Don't miss this after the Grand Palace”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Wonderful display and history of the silk industry in Thailand. Plus it is air conditioned and quiet after the heat and commotion of the Grand Palace. My 6 year old daughter was especially interested in how the villages began silk making together.
