Queen Sirikit Gallery or Queens Gallery is an art museum in Bangkok, Thailand.

The gallery was established in 2003 after the request by Queen Sirikit of Thailand to found a permanent public exhibition and promote the works of acclaimed and young Thai artists. Her Majesty named the exhibition center "The Queen Sirikit Arts Exhibition Center" in Thai, and "The Queen’s Gallery" in English. The Queen’s Gallery Foundation was established on 6 May 2003, and the Queen presided at the official opening on August 9, 2003. The gallery has a floor space covering 3,700 square metres (40,000 sq ft) and is set in a five-storey building.[1]
