If you want to see what the queen wore and how she helped the designing, go ahead and pay a visit. It comes with your Grand Palace ticket so you don't pay anything extra. What is worth seeing are the different videos - especially the one on how silk is made. The royal dresses of the past are displayed and I didn't especially found it very interesting.

Marble stairs, air-conditioned, beautiful dresses, interesting videos.... Every girl and lady should visit this!

This is more than just textiles and pretty dresses. Its about the history of the traditional Thai dresses, so history buffs, don't miss this.

Also, take time to read the displays. Many people just looked at the costumes without reading the display panels. They have more information about the outfits there!

I was really surprised. To be honest I went into the museum just to stay in air conditioned rooms for some minutes as I'm not too interested in textiles and the entry was included in the Grand Palace ticket. But I learned a lot from this museum about Thai culture and the Royals as well and really enjoyed the collection of the Queen. So go there, if you have some free minutes :)

Certainly the most inspiring, interesting and engaging museum I have ever visited. The Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles has left a lasting impression on me, the exhibits really convey the kindness and love of Queen Sirikit. The exhibitions are interactive. Being a foreigner I'd paid 500B to enter the palace grounds, which are (in my opinion) a little overrated and a slight disappointment; this museum, however made this expensive fee seem reasonable. I would recommend setting aside time to visit this museum when you visit the Palace.
