I was so impressed with this museum. They explain the entire story of how these warriors were discovered. You see the three different pits in which they were found, and you get to see how they put them together. It was an amazing, informative and educational place. Do not miss this if you are able to get to Xi'an.

My 2nd time to be back in China, I have made sure that I would see the Terra-Cotta. Warriors. Took a 2 hour flight from Beijing, spent the night in Xi'an, and had a full day tour of the terra cotta warrior the next day. We started early morning, you could see and feel that the crowd is building up.... More

Yes, your probably had heard of the Terracotta Warriors discovery and the Museum is worth a visit ; the site is slightly outside the city centre of Xi'an, on what was previously only an agricultural area. the museum is well organiszed but has like everywhere in China, large crowds of Chinese tourists desembarking from buses with their colourful caps and...

Wasn't prepared for how amazing this site is. Huge pit no. 1 is incredible. You might get jostled and shoved a bit by domestic tourist groups but there are lots of vantage points away from where they position themselves. We took a taxi out there and he waited for us and brought us home. We hired the audio guide on... More

It takes an archeologist 7 months to piece together one statue. So you can imagine how much time it has taken to present the rows and rows of statues on display in pit 1. Pit 1 also shows how statues are repaired in the "hospital" Pits 2 and 3 give a different perspectives of the magnitude of this army. If... More

This should be on everyone's bucketlist. Statues, as sized as regular man, very very old, and yet still real looking, the amount of statues makes it almost unbelievable.

You just have to see this to believe it ! All the tv documentaries, National Geographic articles, or anecdotes about this place, and it's history, don't come anywhere near doing it justice. And who knows how much more there is still to be discovered, unearthed, and meticulously put back together. The shear size of the site is the first real... More
