Nice little museum that details the making of Yun Brocade. Extremely interesting as they have two person looms working in the museum. Free entry. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

I put this place in the list just in case I had free time on the last day and didn't know where to go. At first, I did not expect much from this museum. But as the silk there is certified by UNESCO, I thought there might be something more about the museum.

It turned out to be very impressive for me. There is some information about Chinese silk that we never knew before. I also learned about the culture and civilization of their ancient time through this intangible cultural heritage (and the world's heritage).

I wasn't intent on coming here today, but I am really glad I did. I wanted to go to the Massacre but that was not open, so I found the Brocade museum instead. It was great ! Some of the designs and models inside the museum were simply wonderful. The intricacies of the silk designs were sublime, and it really was an education on how such things of beauty are made and contribute to culture and life. Well worth the visit.

Several happy hours spent learning the story behind and watching the skilled 2 person draw looms in action weaving brocade. A detailed exhibit demonstrating the creation from draft, through warping and weaving this colourful centuries old cloth.

Loved this museum. Light, bright, beautifully laid out. 2 working looms on the Friday that I visited. Everything was in English. Free entry. Quality souvenirs. Staff insisted on Visa or cash.

We came across this museum on our way to the subway from the massacre museum. Not knowing in advance about this museum, we popped in and sure glad we did. The displays to showcase the artistry of brocade weaving was absolutely awesome. The pattern, color and design were just astonishing. The museum was quiet with very few visitors on Sunday at lunch time. There was no one demonstrating the weaving. There was a gift shop and there as no hassle from the sales people. Overall, a very pleasant visit.

We were there in the weekend, so only gift shops, were you can buy brocade silk souvenirs and fabric. Prices are on the high side. An average sjawl cost 1000 rmb.

I am very interested in weaving, so could hardly wait to visit the brocade museum. We had a private guide, so could examine the textiles at leisure, watch the brocade weavers at work for as long as we wanted, and quickly race through the souvenir shop without being snagged to buy anything (no foreign credit cards accepted).

However, while we were looking at examples of imperial brocades, two tour groups entered. The guides used amplified bullhorns, which competed with each other! The museum is small, so wads of people made it impossible to maneuver through the exhibits. I have no suggestions to remedy this problem.

We were glad we saw the museum, but wished crowd-control were better.

In all honesty, this museum is really cool. It's a great experience watching people work over a loom, and admiring the ornate brocades that are up for display. However, it feels like a department store that just so happens to have a museum. It's also a little dirty, but totally tolerable. A nice stop that's right by the Nanjing Massacre Memorial.
