Yes, it is a store, but we felt very well informed about the development of the silk etc. We liked it and, yes, we ended up by buying some bed pillows ect. We did not found the sales person too pussy.

This is a great place to go if you want to buy some silk products - clothing, bedding etc. They also tell you about silk production which is fascinating. Silk duvets are very expensive in the UK - you can buy one here for at least half the price - they will vacuum pack one for you so it isn't... More

We stopped at this Interesting Silk Market. It's not really a museum although it hás a few relics from bygone days on show. They show you how the silk is processed from eggs to worms to pupae. How the threads are unraveled and spun and so on. Ones that is out of the way the sales pitch gets underway. And... More

It was very interesting to learn how silk is made and to watch the process. Such a resilient fibre. The store was quite expensive across all products. Concur with other contributors, it's a stitch up of the tourists, although my arm was not forced to buy anything at all.

Bought 2 already shrink-wrapped expensive 'silk' pillows. When I got home and removed the wrapping, the pillows bounced out. It is like sleeping on a balloon. I made a small opening in the cotton covering only to find that the filling is white fluffy synthetic material which can be removed in tufts. We were brought here as part of a... More

It is a short tour. But, it was very interesting. From beginning to end. Makes one understand the hardwork and why silk is so expensive. They also have a store very large of clothing, bedding & Art. Pricey, but quality. Had to buy a little something...

We were on a Sinorama tour to China March 26 - April 9, 2015 and were taken to this silk museum. I purchased a duvet which came with a duvet cover, top sheet and pillow cases for $474.00 Cdn (special promotion) which I choose from the samples. They shrink wrapped the package for easy travelling. When I returned home I... More

The title of a museum is a bit misleading as it is more of a display of the life cycle of a silkworm and a how do they display of spinning and using the silk. The spinning and the use of the double cocoons was really interesting. The making of duvet inners was also very interesting. The shop has an... More

This place is only on guided tours as a shopping opportunity. I tried to find it on my own in the maps and had a hard time. It is not near any of the other tourist attractions. Our group decided to take a guided day tour and it was on the agenda. My 14 yr old nephew actually liked it.... More
