Take a journey across Asia and discover the spectacular sights, sounds and stories of the greatest trade route of ancient times. Named for the fabric that enticed traders from all over the world, the Silk Road spanned the far reaches of China to the center of the Islamic world.

  • Emboss a passport with symbols as you travel from one city to the next.
  • Experience a full-scale re-creation of a night market, complete with spices, luxury goods and precious raw materials.
  • Walk through a 41-foot-long replica of the prow of an Arabian sailing ship, with a cutaway view of its cargo below deck.

Traveling the Silk Road features immersive re-creations of ancient settings, life-size models, engaging videos and hands-on activities. This exhibition is free with Museum admission.
