Turpan Museum relics and mummies

Turpan Museum Turpan Xinjiang
Turpan Museum offers a window into the past millennium of the Turpan area. The program includes explanations in English, old documents in rare languages, a presentation of ethnic groups and an exhibition of coins in gold and silver. There are also dinosaur fossils and archaic mummies; what amazing sights!

For a complete tour of the history of Turpan and the Silk Road, Turpan Museum is the right place to visit. Recently renovated, the museum offers a varied collection that traces the history of the region over thousands of years. Thus, mummies and skeletons of dinosaurs are considered to be the most interesting attraction compared to the presentation of ethnic minorities and ancient documents found in the region. Explanations in English allow many international visitors to fully understand the events that governed the Turpan region (or Turfan) for so many years.
