What do jade, chess, the camera obscura and Hinduism have in common? They were all exchanged on the Silk Road, of course! The Silk Road was a series of routes that crossed through Europe, the Middle East, and Asia from the first millennium B.C.E. through the second millennium C.E. In this alluring exhibition, visitors of all ages can explore objects from the Museum’s permanent collection that either traveled on the Silk Road or reflect the religions, technologies, and goods that were exchanged en route. Families and students will enjoy a treasure hunt through the exhibition and other galleries, get educational insight through an easy-to-use audio tour, and even satisfy their senses at a spice sniff station.
