This exhibit is truly one-of-a-kind. We had an excellent tour guide that recommended viewing the 3 buildings in reverse order which created a better buildup to the huge display...great idea. This was a fascinating exhibit but was very crowded. As with many public sights in China, take your time and eventually you'll get to see it all. A must see... More

One of themes incredible things I have ever seen in all my journeys across the world. Hard to imagine this was ever created and so much more work is ahead of the people to unearth even more warriors. Cant wait to go back in 20 years!!!

This was my second visit to the Terracotta Warrior site and it continued to amaze me. The amount of thought, planning, workmanship and extreme physical effort that went into this historic site is truly inspiring. You really should make an effort to include Xi'an in your China itinerary.

Well organized museum. Get a guide. We've all seen pictures of the warriors, but seeing them in real life is extraordinary! Just an amazing sight. Just as amazing is how this magnificent site was accidentally discovered and so relatively recently. Still in awe
