Secrets of Silk Road Exclusively for Philly

Penn Museum is announcing that its landmark exhibition from China, Secrets of the Silk Road, will now open to the public with the full complement of artifacts and mummies for a limited time only, beginning Friday, February 18.

Secrets of the Silk Road explores the history of the vast desert landscape of the Tarim Basin, located in Western China, and the mystery of the peoples who lived there. Located at the crossroads between East and West, oasis towns within the Tarim Basin were key way stations for anyone traveling on the legendary Silk Road. Extraordinarily well-preserved human remains found at these sites reveal ancient people of unknown descent. Caucasian in appearance, these mummies challenge long-held beliefs about the history of the area, and early human migration. The material excavated suggests the area was active for thousands of years, with diverse languages, lifestyles, religions, and cultures present. This exhibition provides a chance to investigate this captivating material to begin to uncover some of the secrets of the Silk Road. “We are delighted to be able to present the complete range of this spectacular material, — said Dr. Richard Hodges, the Williams Director of the Penn Museum. — Secrets of the Silk Road is an historic, must-see exhibition and we encourage people to make sure to come to the Penn Museum during its limited run.”

February 18 — March 15 (full exhibition)
March 17 — March 28 (with all artifacts except two mummies)
April 2 — June 5 (interactive experience with pictorial depictions of objects — free with museum admission)
