In this museum you can see the clothes queen Siriket has worn on her trip to Europe. Most of the clothes are made by Balmain. You can also see the clothes worn for stage performances of old stories.

The queen has a major contribution in the evolution of garment and textile in Thailand. Queen Sirikit has dedicated her life mingling with the locals and helping them independant. The Queen has also refined their traditional dress and helped spread the Thai Silk worldwide.

A beautiful museum with a collection of dresses worn by former Queen of Thailand, Lady Sirikit. Her personal collection of designer wear including Balmain and Louis Vuitton are simply alluring.

We did this as a part of the entry into the temples next to the grand palace which you walk pass as part of the entry fee. "500baht". Really we wouldn't have wasted our time especially if you had to pay for it.

This is a small and nice museum to go through. You can access it through the grand palace complex. It will take you about an hour to finish it.

The grand palace is amazing! Really beautiful! However... 500 baht is alot and getting in may seem easier than it sounds. They were Really strict On letting You in with shorts and t-shirts.

“Fit for a Queen” is not a play on words, it’s the name of a current exhibit at this exquisite must-see museum. Another current exhibit is “Dressing Gods & Demons.” This features traditional garb of iconic Thai costumes, often in slow motion dances. Overwhelmingly featured are clothes created for Queen Sirikit, both when in residence and western style garb when... More

We really enjoyed this museum that is located within the walls of the palace. The ticket comes with your entry to the palace grounds. This collection has both Traditional Thai garments, ceremonial and western style dresses designed for the queen on her visits abroad. Really some stunning pieces.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
