This silk museum is worth visiting if you are interested in this type of product or if you wish to purchase silk products. Otherwise nothing special.

The tour here was short yet informative. It was interesting to see real silk worms, the cocoons, and the overall silk making process. The real goal here is to sell silk products and they have some nice things. I picked up a king silk duvet...More

After a fast and very short explanation of silk, they took us to the retail store. The price was very reasonably. I checked the quilt if it is real silk inside, and it was. I was also sure that such a registered place would never...More

A very quick explanation of the silk making process. Then it was onto the selling part of the tour - we were not interested in purchasing anything but just happy to admire the beautiful quilts, pillow cases etc.
