Traveling the Silk Road Marketplace


The Silk Road Marketplace, now open, is an exotic holiday shopping experience. At the end of Traveling the Silk Road exhibition on Level 1, you'll find a luxurious shop that features a wealth of merchandise, from silks to jewelry to teas and spices, inspired by the goods traded along the 4,600-mile pathway stretching from eastern China through the cities of Central Asia to the Middle East.

An assortment of aromatic teas and spices, silks garments, furniture and décor, camel-themed gifts and more will be arriving on a regular basis through April 13. 2014.
