#33 of 74 in Museums in Shanghai
Feel the appeal of silk at Shanghai Jiangnan Silk Museum. Pass the antique gate to watch the whole process of silk production. Observe silkworms eating leaves and closing into cocoons: one of these tiny pods can provide over 1,000 m (3,280 ft) of silk thread. Get involved in thread-pulling to experience the technique of silk processing. Talk with factory workers to understand the intriguing process behind clothes, bed linens, and other objects made here. Prepare for a bit of pressure to buy from the onsite store, and check the materials before you do to ensure they're pure silk.

  • They call it Museum, but is a store. For lovers of silk in this store can indulge in purchases. I highly recommend buying silk filled duvet. Spectacular, silk holds the temperature of our body so it's good for all 12 months of the year. Also available set of different sizes, colors and patterns at very good prices. The purchase is sealed and you can Board as hand luggage. After visiting the Ward House I recommend a side trip to the clothing Department and gifts, where you will find several opportunities. English-speaking staff and attentive to your requests. Only minus the little time available

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
