  • QUEEN SIRIKIT, the mother of the current Thai king and the recently crowned Queen of The King of Fumifon, created the space in the royal palace in 2003 as a museum, a museum of traditional Thai textiles. She had a close relationship with pierre Balman, the original fashion designer, and fashion and textiles, and she also held a fashion exhibition for balmainfor the Queen. The Queen is also said to have tried to embody the combination of traditional Thai clothing and modern fashion. This is where President Moon Jae-in visited with his wife, The Thai Prime Minister, during his visit this year.

  • The entrance is around the Grand Palace, therefore, make sure you dress properly to get into that area, great exhibition especially for Balmain lovers  more »
  • If you've already paid to see the Grand Palace, take another 15-30 minutes and go through the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles. It's not so much a textile museum, but more of a tribute to the life and...  more »

  • Nice presentation of indonesian batik
  • See the glory of Thai fashion thru Queen Sirikit. Drop by when going to the Grand Palace.
  • 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.
  • Great museum. Awesome display.
  • Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles' History. Absolutely worth a visit.
