Suzhou Silk Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • Very old Silk factory, currently a famous tourism spot. Excellent Display of Silk used by kings used since more than 10 decades.

  • One of the stops on our China tour itinerary. First we had 20 minutes presentation about what are the uses and products of silk. Then walked to next building, first floor is a silk museum showing the process of making silk products and display of silk clothing & beddings. 2nd floor is the retail store for selling all kind of silk merchandise. Majority customers are tourists. Price..... a little bit overpriced compared to local shops. 3rd floor, a Chinese restaurant.

  • Interesting and free! It's not very big and most of the exhibits focus on the type of cloth and patterns popular in each dynasty. I was hoping to see more about the process itself and how it is made, especially in the modern era. But that was just a small portion and nothing showing current methods. Well, there are English subtitles everywhere and it is free, so no complaints.

  • As for me, it was very interesting. Good museum.

  • A great museum for a quick look around.
