The Dunhuang Museum is located in the south of Dunhuang City. It is a museum that displays the historical relics of Dunhuang in the Silk Road and the precious cultural relics in Mogao Grottoes. The museum has a very special appearance and looks like the walls of the Great Wall of the Han Dynasty and the beacon tower. Entering the interior of the museum seems to be a group of grottoes. The walls and corridors inside are all in the form of ancient cave corridors. The museum has multiple exhibition halls, but the main exhibition is the theme exhibition of the Dunhuang Museum - "The City of Huaying Intersection".

Dunhuang Museum has a very special appearance, the khaki-based building, looks like the walls of the Great Wall and the beacon tower. Entering the interior of the museum seems to be a group of grottoes. The walls and corridors inside are all in the form of ancient cave corridors. The exhibits displayed in the museum are still not so rich compared to the Gansu Provincial Museum. Since they can't do the breadth, they have to be deep, so they mainly focus on the Silk Road and the Mogao Grottoes.
Everywhere in the city, the local museum is the place I must go. This is especially true in Dunhuang. If there is still a place in China that can preserve the civilization that has never been interrupted, and where can we integrate the travellers who are going east and west, where can we leave such a splendid civilization, where can the people in the past leave in the heart? Unforgettable affection, that is Dunhuang!
