Attraction Details :
This converted Thai home is a production and retail site for traditional Thai court dolls, established as a royal initiative by Her Majesty the Queen in 1976. Aimed at providing locals with a way to earn supplementary income, the center also helps preserve a dying Thai art. Visitors can observe the intricate craftsmanship involved in these handmade dolls right inside artisans’ homes as well. In addition, a co-op for doll-makers is based at the center, giving artisans support and the public fair prices.
Thai court dolls are beautiful and ornate clay figurines used to depict the Thai way of life during bygone eras, including scenes of children playing, Thai orchestras performing, and even Thai fruit, making them beautiful souvenirs for any visitor.
The center is located behind a temple, WatThaSutthawat, in Tambon Ban Bang Sadet. It is open daily from 9.00 am-4.00 pm. For more information, please call 0 3566 2995.
