Really great museum showing the whole process of silk production from the silk worm egg to the finished product. Presented in a beautifully restored historic building and a very helpful English guide to help with interpretation. Well worth a visit.

Very nice museum... Nic's tour around the museum and the art of silk processing was outstanding. The visitor can see the whole process and history of silk, starting from the birth of silkworm!!

If you understand English ask Nik to explain you about the silk. She is a great tour guide and very competent. She is from UK but knows everything about silk.
