I would say that the museum is not large, has few exhibits. The staff was sweet, tried to explain me the stitches, but I think I know more than them, because I am keen on cross-stitching and hope to learn embroidery one day. The art works are not as impressive as I saw in an ordinary workshop in Vietnam, but some of them were really nice.

Not every tourist takes time to see the brocade museum, but it is their loss, for this is a place of great sophistication in weaving aesthetics. Many of the works are extremely beautiful. To realize the difficulty of creating these works, the mathematics involved in the weaving process, the craftsmanship and the art itself. You can take the subway and then walk less than 20 minutes to the museum if you desire. It is well worth the two hours. But bring a lot of yuan if plan to buy anything.

The brocade museum might have been one of my favorite places I visited in Chengdu while I was there for a month. A local had mentioned its existence and I threw out the suggestion to my mother who was interested in visiting it. The pieces of brocade were incredibly beautiful and all the information was in both Chinese and English. In fact, this museum had by far the most English information provided than any other place I visited in China (including the Forbidden City). Another awesome part about visiting the museum was that we practically had the entire exhibition to ourselves. I would highly recommend visiting this museum if you interested in art, or just curious.

Unlike the brocade museum in Nanjing, here you can get up close to the HUGE brocade looms to see the weaving in process. The museum had many brocade and embroidered items from the Qing dynasty thru modern times. As expected, the shop at the end of the museum had many items for sale, but no one "hustled" us to buy. We spent perhaps 45 minutes going thru here. It is a small museum, but very interesting.
