The Terra Cotta Warriors are humbling and thought provocative

We had a choice to go to Tibet or the Warriors. So glad we chose the warriors. Although it is sad to see how the warriors were destroyed, it is inspiring to see how meticulously... read more

We searched for the place, asked many local people including the cab driver, none of them could tell us the exact location. The cab driver even didn't hear about this place. Finally the police/guard told us that it was closed.

We had a choice to go to Tibet or the Warriors. So glad we chose the warriors. Although it is sad to see how the warriors were destroyed, it is inspiring to see how meticulously they put them back together. There was just a small group of us and it was not a very busy day. I do wish I... More

Not the easiest place to get to unless with organised trip or as I did hire a driver for the day. 2-3 hours needed to see it all and it is not like a European tourist attraction bit disorganised but still easy to make your way around without having to pay extra for a guide. Love led my visit should... More

Most of the comments on this page are about the Terracotta Warriors near Xi'An (ShaanXi) and not about the museum in WeiShan near to JiNan (ShanDong). The museum for the WeiShan Terracotta Warriors is currently closed. I've learned that the museum will be relocated to ZhangQiu city. The reopening shall be on 23.08.2015.

Fantastic site, you will be impressed with the scale of the exhibitions. It does get a bit crowded, but it is not a problem, as the site is large. All the normal superblitives apply to this trip. I don't know about cost as we went as a pre-booked trip.

This was an awesome place to visit but the title is incorrect, they are not in WeiShan. Nonetheless, we loved visiting the site and couldn't imagine a trip to China without seeing them. We now have a 3/4 size replica of the warrior in our front room!

This place is massive and wheel chair friendly. We were there in June and it was warm but not impossibly so. It is large and spread out so bring comfy shoes. There are cafes on site and ice cream available. Its easy to spend an afternoon there or longer. Be prepared for lots of people. Certainly not to be missed.

This is an amazing location, the Museum is literally built right over the dig site. There are lots of numbers and billboards telling you exactly what the number represents, i.e. reconstruction of broken various, first soldier found, etc. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time, there is soooo much to take in. Don't wait for an exhibit to come... More

Incredible historical find... provides a fascinating insight into the Chinese dynasty...very popular so very crowded during our mid-week visit in mid-April... too much for a half a day I would recommend a day if you have the time... awesome.
