Closed due to Covid-19

We tried to visit the museum today, 1st August 2021, and it was closed due to some Covid 19 cases popping up around China. Please call ahead to avoid disappointment.

Well you can't come to China without seeing this, can you?
Jul 2021 • Solo
Yep, get there early! The early start was well worth it as I was one of the first through the gates (although then slightly delayed as I was pulled to one side to be questioned as a foreigner about where I was from, where had I been etc. But, this happens regularly in China and didn't cause any big problems). Ticket office was closed but a lovely member of staff helped me buy through wechat, then was able to walk around on my own. Don't think you need a guide if you have read up about it before (I also bought an amazing book about the history of the place whilst there). Pit 1 was of course incredible, but actually I think 2 and 3 were equally as awesome. Seeing so much of it yet to be discovered was actually really fascinating, and I love that they are prioritising trying to protect the statues, and finding a scientific way of doing it to keep the paint on them is excellent - they aren't rushing to uncover them all to enhance the tourist side. It was done really well! Plenty of souvenirs available. I'd had a good look round within 2 - 3 hours and was ready to leave by about 11am when all the big tour groups were arriving - really easy to get a didi to and fro. Be sure to check it out if you are in Xi'an!

Be careful with the time, might be very crowded
Jun 2021 • Couples
World famous terracotta warriors is a spectacular sightseeing and reach history - take a guide with you (you can find them next to the entrance, around 100 yuan) to learn more about the dark story of Terracotta Army. For the price of ticket (120 yuan for adult, 60 for students) you get the entrance to exhibition halls inside the main park and also you can go to see tomb of Qin Shi Huang, but that’s another park. To get there you need to take a special brown bus (around 20 more minutes) and then another small transferring cart for 10 minutes. There you’ll see two museums and tomb (actually only the monument on the top- tomb is underground and it’s still closed). Honestly, the second part is not worthy- I suggest to stop on the first park.

Always Amazing
May 2021 • Family
Excellent! haven’t been here in 15years & it’s greatly improved as a tourist area. Lots to see & easy to photograph.
Avoid the “tour guides” before you enter unless you’re good at bargaining price.
Well worth the visit & experience.

Fascinating to see, a must visit in China
Jun 2021 • Family
This site lives up to its reputation. It is absolutely fascinating to see. Come early because its gets very crowded later in the day. Everything is well organised, and you can see the whole thing without a guide. We pre-booked our tickets from Travel Guide China, and that worked really well.

The place is overrated. There are staffs here who are rude. They treat foreigners very bad. We were shouted at. Hated it.

My Trip to X'ian , The Terracota Warriors & my English Tour Guides
May 2021
I had a wonderful experience visiting Terracota Warriors & spending the day visiting historical sites in Xi'An with my private tour guides. They were Mr. DingYi (xadingyi@163.com, (+86)18009220086) who drove us around from place to place & Mary (Email: maryguide@yeah.net). Ding was truly a gentleman & took me wherever I wanted to go. The day package was arranged by Ding and he was very reasonable in his price, compared to others I had contacted. He also made all the arrangements for tickets, and was very familiar with the routes, sites to see, places to eat and best ways to avoid traffic, etc. Aside from that, he is VERY experienced & very knowledgable on the history. Unfortunately, Ding didn't feel comfortable accompanying me with the walking tour because he felt his English was not strong enough. But, he arranged Mary as the tour companion who joined us that day. She was was wonderful, had great knowledge of the history, always smiling, patient & an overall pleasant personality. On the last day I had lost my phone (it got stolen) and was in a very tricky situation since we are so phone dependent in China. I was able to contact DingYi, he came to my hotel, escorted me to the airport, and helped me navigate without my phone. It gave me a lot of comfort and piece of mine, in a place where I felt I was the only one that spoke English and was in a tough situation.

I really recommend visiting the ancients sites of Xi'An and touring with Ding & Mary!

Highlight of the Trip
Apr 2021
Truly the highlight of my Xian trip. The collection is truly worth traveling to and is much more massive than people think. It is always growing because they are assembling new soldiers daily. such an amazing visit!
