In the 2nd century BC, during the Western Han Dynasty , Zhang Qian was sent by the Emperor of China on mission into the heart of Central Asia. To do this he opened a new trade route. For more than 18 centuries, this road was one of the most important trade routes.
Over 160 articles and precious objects have been gathered together today as a testimony to this historic road.
Fifty or so objects have also come directly from Kazakhstan and Kirghizistan.
