“Museum of Silk Production”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A very intersting museum set in a very historic walled village.

The museum covers the production of silk from the breed of silk worms to final production of the silk yarn and also has a small section on weaving the different type of clothes produced from silk.

The have an English handout and the introductory film has english subtitles.

Maybe not ideal for children as the exhibits are very technical which add for male visitors who might think that silk is only of interest to ladies.

Can recommend exploring the town as well look for the covered clothes washing bath

“Last place where silk was made up to 1963”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Everything is kept and the old looms are operated by buttons. The lady who sells the tickets can answer your questions and especially the film (English subtitles) are telling the story. Sadly it is non operational any more but produced the silk up to 1963.
