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.

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
