If nothing else, it's a great place to enjoy some A/C after walking in the heat of the Grand Palace. But then while you are enjoying the A/C you may actually learn something about the history of silk, how they make it and the importance of silk to Thailand. I found it interesting, hope you do too.

In Thailand, Queen Sirikit is known for having a good taste in fashion. This museum actually contains the story of her wardrobe collection, mostly from her earlier days as the Queen.During the preparation of her maiden visit to other countries, the Queen initiated a project to collect all kind of indigenous textile works in Thailand, and made them as the inspiration for her fashion design. Wonderful huh?The building is a modern one, but the collection is not much. I think they are still working to enhance this museum. It would be better if we can also see a specific traditional clothes from each part of Thailand.The museum shop also needs to expand its collection. I wanted to buy some traditional peasant's clothing, but they only have the modern style.I think I have to give this site 4 stars. Hahaha... because they give me free magnetic souvenir.

This is a new addition to the grand palace site. This has the different types of clothes the queen wore at her different visits to different countries. For fashionistas, this might be a place of interest.
