This museum is in a nice building and the exhibits clearly tell Xian’s dynastic history. We enjoyed our visit here. There are also nice grounds around the museum and you get to see the Small Wild Goose Pagoda that had not been restored

Good to see many ancient products of china and learned about a bit of Chinese history. However, way too many people that you can not see everything, and people were squashing through and talking loud all the time. No peace there at all.

Some exhibitions are closed for renovations - check the re-opening dates if you would like to spend more time at the museum.

Well, firstly I put on Zhihu( Chinese Quora) where there are lots of users search questions alike. It was also because I haven't found a better way to reach my audience who might happen to travel over there.
