Step 1,000 years back in time to experience the sights, sounds and stories of the greatest trading route in history:
Imagine a world in which the latest ideas traveled not by wireless networks but by camel. Centuries ago, merchants, missionaries and other travelers made their way across Asia, along the enormous trade network known as the Silk Road. Over rugged mountains and forbidding deserts, camel caravans loaded with precious cargo made possible the exchange of valuable goods, ideas and innovations. Traveling the Silk Road is an interactive exhibition that showcases goods and cultures from China to the center of the Islamic world from A.D. 600 to 1200.
