This gets a very good for one reason only, it was quiet and I enjoyed seeing how they make the duvets - I actually learnt something - otherwise it gets a poor mark. The duvets are reasonably priced and they pack them for you for ease of transport home. This meant I could take two duvets packed up as a... More

This is not a museum, there is a brief outline about how to make silk which was quite interesting but this is mainly a shop. The duvets are quite cheap compared to other places in China but if your not interesting in buying anything then do not go!

Lets be honest, this is not a museum, it's a shop. It says at the top of this page "recommended length of stay - 1-2 hours" utter rubbish, if you don't go in the shop, you can be in and out in no more than 10 minutes. The only thing that makes this place a 3 star is that it... More

We stopped here as part of a Uniworld tour. We were told by our guide before we arrived that we would have a great opportunity buy some great silk products. Their museum was really a chance to educate us about the whole process. It was really neat and also hands on. Once you go through the demonstration you are in... More

This place is as much a silk museum as my house is a kitchen museum because I have some things my grandparents left me and that I would be happy to tell you about. There are some live worms, a display of the life stages of the silkworm and an old spinning machine (that the poor woman trying to get... More

Tourist attraction. Learned about origin and process for making silk. Lisa was our personal guide and shopper. Gorgeous silk household and fashion items. Spent a small fortune but can't wait until they arrive.

A trip to this "museum" was included as part of a tour of Shanghai. To describe as a museum is stretching the definition to breaking point - there are two small rooms with badly faded boards showing the lifecycle of silk worms. From there you enter an area with some demonstrations of the silk making process before being shepherded into... More

The Silk Museum was an unexpected surprise as it was much more than just an excuse to get you into their store. It was fascinating to learn how the silk fiber is prepared and used. I did buy some silk bed pillows that we really like and some beautiful silk scarves. The store did have plenty of souvenir type merchandise... More
