Relatively new museum. There were a few of the fabled mummies found along the Silk Road.

“Worth a trip if you have half a day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

Xinjing Regional Museum is closed on Monday and open rather late (around 10:00-10:30 depending on the time of the year), we didn't plan our trip well so ended up waiting for over an hour. Not a big museum only 2-3 stories. The highlight are ancient desert ruins and mummies, some are obviously Caucasian, some are as old as 4,000 years or more. There is also folk customs exhibition which illustrates the dress, lifestyle, religion, marriage customs, festivals and other aspects of the life of the 12 minorities that live in Xinjiang.
