  • 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.
  • 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
  • Great work display and a good place to visit
  • Lovely museum portraying silk and textile work of the Queen's clothing.
