China National Silk Museum (Zhōngguósīchóubówùguǎn)

China National Silk Museum (Zhōngguósīchóubówùguǎn) Review

From worm to weave, the China National Silk Museum explores traditional silk production, illustrating every step of the process. By the end, you'll comprehend the cost of this fine fiber made from cocoons of mulberry-munching larvae. On display are looms, brocades, and a rotating exhibit of historic robes from different Chinese dynasties. The first-floor shop has the city's largest selection of silk, and sells it by the meter. The museum is south of West Lake, on the road to Jade Emperor Hill.
