China -> Urumqi -> Xinjiang Autonomous Region Museum
Xinjiang Autonomous Region Museum    Urumqi, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region

The Xinjiang Autonomous Region Museum recently underwent a huge renovation to add life to the once stale museum. Here you can learn about the Buddhist civilizations that once inhabited the land and its impressive collection of mummified bodies. These bodies were preserved by the withering effects of the arid desert, with one female body dating back 4,000 years. A few of the bodies tell us of a possible nomadic invasion by a tribe that spoke a language called Tocharian.
