“Not a museum but still worth a visit”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

I don't consider this a museum but is still an interesting place to learn how silk is made. A guide escorted us to several displays of the silk making process and explained each step. We were allowed to touch the cocoons and feel the silk thread. They specialize in making silk comforters so they showed us the process of making one. Then we were led to a showroom of comforters and silk covers for sale and then to a room with a vast selection of silk clothing for sale. This is silk business and not a museum. A real silk museum is in Suzhou and definitely worth a visit if you are in that part of China.

“Wonderful place to know the history of Silk and also to buy silk!”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

This place is very interesting and official.
Surely it's more expensive than other places, but I'll get REAL SILK.
And also you can learn the whole process of silk making!
You will only be able to bargaing a little, not as much as everywhere else in Beijing
