Since its founding, the China National Silk Museum has been committed to a number of international research networks and alliances, such as the International Association for the Study of Silk Road Textiles, and organized a host of international events, including the annual "Silk Road Week", as part of its efforts to spread silk culture to a broader audience.

Over the past three decades, the generations of staff in the China National Silk Museum have witnessed and engaged in the founding, development and flourishing of China's silk cultural displays.
