Easy accessible by a bus between Jiayuguan and Jiuquan (twice an hour, stop on demand)
But alas, as for early 2017, closed due to renovation

A bit out of hand and the exhibits with not a clear chronological order

Interesting Museum. It was very quiet. Probably not so many visitors as it's located a bit out of the way, between JiuQuan and JiaYuGuan, closer to the first one. The lights were off when I arrived so the staff when to turn it in. There is a main central hall with 2 floors. Only the ground floor was open. Then you go through a large courtyard to visit east hall and west hall. There are a lot of interesting objects, most with identification label also in English which is quite good. A very nice jade collection. But is seems a bit mixed with pieces from different periods side by side alternately. Some ceramics seem to be replicas, but it might be just to my naked eye. The entrance ticket is 60RMB.
There is a green bus connecting JiuQuan and JiaYuGuan during the day and you can ask the driver to drop you off at the intersection to the museum. It's only 3RMB. Then you walk about 1km to the north to get to the Museum.

Note: location on TripAdvisor map is not correct. The actual location is a bit to the west, out of the same main road between JiuQuan and JiaYuGuan

The Silk Route Museum of Jiuquan An Outstanding Museum in Jiuquan!

Last month while i was staying in Jiuquan China I was privileged to be able to visit
the Silk Route Museum with a Chinese host I was staying with,
The Museum is really excellent.There is an entry fee of about 60-70 CNY for an adult ,yet
the money is well worth it ,as the fee included a guided tour of the Museum by one of it's
excellent staff.Some of the exhibits are really old and imaculately presented.The factual information presented alongside some of the exhibits is very interesting and highly
informative.Nearly all the exhibits have a connection with ancient China and the Silk Road
in some way,shape,or form.I was most impressed with the layout of the Museum,and the
excellent exhibits. The art work in some of the exhibits is fantastic. I highly recommend this
Museum to anyone visiting Jiuquan. The only drawback is no photography is permitted in the
Museum yet it is still well worth a visit Andrew
