    Very good recap of the history and events in the Han Dynasty to open the West Territories for trade along the Silk Road

Additional Information


The Dunhuang Museum is located in the south of Dunhuang City. It is a museum that displays the historical relics of Dunhuang in the Silk Road and the precious cultural relics in Mogao Grottoes. The museum has a very special appearance and looks like the walls of the Great Wall of the Han Dynasty and the beacon tower. Entering the interior of the museum seems to be a group of grottoes. The walls and corridors inside are all in the form of ancient cave corridors. The museum has multiple exhibition halls, but the main exhibition is the theme exhibition of the Dunhuang Museum - "The City of Huaying Intersection".
