Quite a nice surprise. The museum lays out everything about the region in terms of geography, geology, history and culture. The sections on Silk Road and Uyghur culture are most interesting. It gives a comprehensive introduction to the whole region.

Other interesting displays were ancient ceramics, art, and musical instruments. Don't miss this great...More
