“Beautiful Dresses”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

The textile museum is on the Grand Palace grounds. It was nice and not crowded. Beautiful dresses and ornate. It doesn't take much time to go through the whole museum, it was fast.

“Beautiful Dresses.”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Much pleased to visit this textile museum showing Queen's dresses for various occasions. It is a good thing to have this museum so a tourist can appreciate the costumes at different times and the era!

“Surprisingly great”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

I visited the textile museum as an after thought while at the Grand Palace and ended up really enjoying it. I knew nothing about the Royal couple's visit to America, and I found myself quickly becoming a huge admirer of the elegant queen. You will learn about the history of traditional Thai dress, and get to see the queen's gorgeous dresses on display. Maybe it was the air-conditioning swaying my opinion, but I thought it was well worth a visit.

“It's ok”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

If you want to see what the queen wore and how she helped the designing, go ahead and pay a visit. It comes with your Grand Palace ticket so you don't pay anything extra. What is worth seeing are the different videos - especially the one on how silk is made. The royal dresses of the past are displayed and I didn't especially found it very interesting.
