Suzhou Silk Museum, Suzhou

3.3
#2 of 14 in Museums in Suzhou
At Suzhou Silk Museum, watch silk being spun on old-fashioned looms and learn how to tell the real deal from imitations. Surrounded by mulberry shrubs--the favorite food of silkworms--the museum boasts exhibitions on the 4,000-year history of China’s silk capital. As you enter, you'll see a long, white, curved wall, which symbolizes the Silk Road and its role in the development of this fine fabric. Three marble statues of girls--picking mulberry leaves, washing fabric, and weaving--introduce you to the silk-making process. Look for a room full of models of silkworms in mulberry leaves spinning cocoons, then see how silk fashions have changed over the centuries under the influence of different dynasties.

  • The Soviet Silk Museum building has a sense of time, the museum is small, although the exhibits are not many, but some features such as the Old Thorn embroidery, the goods are very neat, exquisite silk clothing beautiful Longoza, the free Reference museum has been very good. Sit on the iron in the North Temple under the tower 5-8 minutes to go, tens don't go wrong, also don't report, the report is easy to deceive.

  • Free. Great if you're into fabric. The live silk worms were a highlight.
  • OMG....pass on this. If you want to buy silk stuff it is a worthy stop but if you are looking for history, do not go...
  • Under construction 2016. Before that a must see.
