  • Great fun very interesting and informative. Thai culture and textiles goes way back. I would recommend highly  more »
  • A very interesting museum, which can be seen separately from the Grand Palace, or as part of a larger visit. The museum focuses on the style and fashion of the Thai queen during the 50s, 60s, and 70s,...  more »
  • If you are interested in textiles from Thailand avoid this museum:it is just a collection of Balenciaga western dresses...  more »

  • Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles' History. Absolutely worth a visit.
  • A great place to while away an hour in air conditioned restored wing of the grand palace in a small museum built to international standards of presentation and information. Queen Sirikit was one of the most beautiful and richest monarch's wifes so her couture collection designed for her in the early 1960's contains many stunning and beautiful pieces. Plenty of photos and videos supplement the static displays. At 150 baht for standalone admission is relatively good value and if you have paid 500 baht for the Grand Palace then admission is already included in your price.
  • Rather than visiting too crowded Grand Palace, I would suggest to visit this historical Thai textile museum with lot of variety style of batik, cotton, traditional and silk clothing
  • For me this was the most interesting and fun bit of the whole grand palace experience (I thought it a bit too busy, too gaudy and too much), whereas this was calm, had features and explanations of the costumes used in traditional dance displays and you could even dress up like a demon!
  • Interesting but a bit too expensive for locals. if you buy the ticket for the grand Palace you are entitled to visit this museum as well. there is a silk shop on the ground floor, free entrance
