Nanjing Jiangning Imperial Silk Manufacturing Museum-Nanjing Jiangning Imperial Silk Manufacturing Museum – a place hidden away from noises

Built in 2003, it is situated in the ruins of ‘Jiangning Imperial Silk Manufacturing’ from the Qing Dynasty (over 260 years ago), which was a government-run institution specializing in the manufacture of silk fabrics for the exclusive usage of royal families and officials. The ruins contained a residence and government office of supervisor officials and a weaving factory producing silk fabrics. It was also the temporary royal dwelling palace in the Qing Dynasty. A very famous Chinese novel writer Mr. Cao Xueqing was born and lived here during his childhood as well when his family managed the manufacturing institution for nearly 60 years.
