  • As you are leaving the Grand Palace this relatively small building is on the left. The entry fee is included in the fee for the Grand Palace complex. There is an exhibition of the traditional costumes...  more »
  • After a hot visit to the Grand Palace attractions, this was a very welcome change. Very uncrowded, air conditioned, with lovely exhibits of traditional Thai costumes, and then of the Queen's wardrobe ...  more »

  • 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
  • Great work display and a good place to visit

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
