Dress the Dolls in Thai Style
Dress dolls in Thai ladies’ costumes from various periods including the 8 styles created by HM Queen Sirikit as well as men’s costumes for various occasions.

A quiz game that tests visitors’ general knowledge about textiles, raw materials and tools in all 8 quiz boxes to find the answer to the question of what’s in each of the boxes.

Imagine wearing colors matched to each day of the week! 
Visitors can dress themselves in traditional dress according to the auspicious colors of the days detailed in the memoirs of Princess Chongchitrathanom Diskul. 

Inspired by the patterns found on Thai textiles such as mat mii, phrae wa, phaa yok, chok, khit, and Hill Tribe textiles. Participants can use rubber stamps provided by the studio to create their own patterns on card stock to take home as a souvenir from the museum.

Textiles in Thailand
Do you know that costumes and textiles in each region of Thailand have their own distinctive identity? Their colors, motifs, techniques, and styles reveal their origin.

The thread used to weave Thai silk textiles comes from silkworms. It takes about 30-35 days from the time the silk moth lays her eggs to the time the adult silkworm spins the cocoon that is harvested for thread.

Although the patterns and the colors are the same, each silk cloth has its own style and detail. This is because it is entirely hand-made from start to finish. Each piece of handwoven silk is unique.

Northeast-style house
The climate in the northeastern region is dry, so rice farming doesn’t work well. The SUPPORT Foundation under the Patronage of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit has encouraged people to have a secondary job, particularly weaving, to increase their income and improve their quality of life.

Inspired by the patterns found on Thai textiles such as mat mii, phrae wa, phaa yok, chok, khit, and Hill Tribe textiles. Participants can use rubber stamps provided by the studio to create their own patterns on card stock to take home as a souvenir from the museum.
