The book describes how the museum established a collection of textiles and clothing both at home and abroad, a communication system with equal emphasis on tradition and fashion, a research system with scientific, technological and humanistic features, the protection and inheritance system at the museum, and the research platform of the Silk Road culture.

The China National Silk Museum also held an exhibition to commemorate its 30th anniversary, starting from April 15. The exhibition, which is themed on the museum's evolution over the past three decades, features sections on the ancient Silk Road, traditions surrounding silk and outstanding silk creations from around the world.

The museum's collection has expanded significantly over the past 30 years, from more than 800 items when it first started to the current 70,000. The museum's annual visitor numbers have also risen from 100,000 to more than 700,000 during this period.

The museum, which is a UNESCO World Heritage center, also features exhibits related to the protection, restoration and utilization of silk, and its research system centered on fibers, dyes and craftsmanship.
