Journeys: The Silk Road
Opening this summer, Journeys:The Silk Road is an exhibit for the whole family. Enjoy “hands-on, minds-on” learning as you explore the people, goods, and ideas that traveled the Silk Road. Pull up a seat in the traveler’s tent, try on a dancer’s costume, smell the spices, be a trader, explore maps, read books, learn how silk is made, investigate different materials, sit on a lotus, and more!
This new gallery is made possible by contributions to the Campaign for the Future, which is designed to enhance our our visitors’ experience through more interactive exhibitions and education programmes.

Donor Profile: The Docent Council
One of the major supporters of the new education gallery Journeys: The Silk Road is the museum’s own Docent Council. The Council is the governing body responsible for our invaluable volunteer docents, who guide more than 4,000 visitors of all ages through the museum’s collections and exhibitions every year.
“We are so pleased to have a space permanently dedicated to education again,” said Lisa Davis, chair of the Council, “and we are delighted to have had a role in the planning. Naturally, when we had some funds available, it seemed appropriate to support the project financially as well. I hope this is just the beginning of making the museum more ‘user-friendly.’”
As individuals, the museum’s docents have been among the most generous donors to the Campaign for the Future, contributing more than $140,000.
