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.

I saw the Terracotta Warriors last September in Xian, they are not in Weishan as advertised, but apart from that mistake they are well worth seeing and the museum is just as amazing.....

This is the main problem with a site run by very few people unfamiliar with a place. Jinan is not Xi'an -- they are ten hours' drive from one another -- and the majestic and impressive (and open) museum is there, not Jinan. Don't let people make this mistake: vote up the reviews that point this out so people are... More

I cannot say enough good things about this site, we met and had photos with one of the original founders, one of the four brothers who owned the farm. We watched workers painstakingly reassemble a warrior. We ate at an amazing restaurant where we sampled delicious local dishes! This site was the highlight of my trip! I highly recommend!

I found this pretty useful, hopefully it will help someone else too. Straight from travel concierge: 1. Most reviews (over 98%) on Tripadvisor for Terracotta Wariors of Weishan were supposed to be comments for Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an but not Weishan, this is misleading, please be aware. 2. According to reviews and research in Chinese, Weishan is more like a... More

Wow! This is an incredible site. You will see an army but more is buried than is visible. They keep the warriors in the ground to protect the colors. You will see hundreds that are uncovered. This a wonder and beautiful.

If you get a chance to visit China, you must go and see the Terra Cotta Warriors. It will take your breath away. Every soldier and horse are different. The feat of putting these amazing soldiers, horse's, chariots back together is enormous. The whole experience has left me in awe.

A MUST SEE! I loved seeing the masterful created Terra Cotta Clay Warriors, Chariots, and Horses! They are still unearthing the warriors ...8,000 so far, some with some of the colored glaze on them. We purchased a Detailed Photo book signed copy from one of the farmers that found these soldiers.You watch a show that is worth seeing on the... More
