CGTN published this video item, entitled “Xinjiang Museum: A cross-civilizational treasure trove” – below is their description.
Museums are a great place to take a look at a region’s past and make sense of the present. The Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region Museum in Urumqi showcases the history of China’s far west, that has been the hub of the Ancient Silk Road, and a melting pot of multiple cultures and religions for millennia.

In This Story: Xinjiang
Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
