Update: The Penn Museum’s Secrets Of The Silk Road Exhibition Opens Today With a Full Complement of Chinese Artifacts And Mummies
From now to March 15, Secrets of the Silk Road will be presented with the original artifacts and mummies from China for a limited time only.
From March 17-28, the exhibition will continue with all the artifacts but without the two headlining mummies: an infant wrapped in a blue bonnet and burgundy woolen shroud nearly 2,000 years ago, and the nearly 4,000-year-old “Beauty of Xiaohe” woman.
This weekend is the perfect opportunity to visit the exhibition; save room for lunch at the Pepper Mill Cafe, which is serving Silk Road-inspired food.
