The "Collections" link consists of British, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Russian collections, as well as other smaller collections, such as in Sweden and Finland, under "Other Collections".

Visitors interested in teaching about the Silk Road will find that the "Education" link has a "Teach" section that offers lots of wonderful exercises for those who "wish to explore the culture, languages, religions and creativity of the Silk Road." Some of the lessons include "Cultural Dialogue on the Silk Road: A Mini Gallery" and "Medicine on the Silk Road". Visit this site.
