Go Back in Time 1,000 Years and Still Make it Home for Dinner
Step 1,000 years back in time to experience the sights, sounds, and stories of the greatest trading route in history – the legendary Silk Road. Immersive re-creations of ancient settings feature life-size models, artifacts, and hands-on activities, telling the story of the route’s extraordinary golden age and its influence on the world. This exciting exhibit explores a time when the information superhighway was a network of land routes that stretched 4,600 miles across blazing desert sands and snowy mountain passes.
