This is the first archeology site that I have visited and I am impressed. I, was at the Banpo Museum as part of the day tour to see, the Terracotta Army, the Huaqing Palace and also a run at Wen Yi South Road for ornamental fish window shopping. In fact, I still have some time, which the driver has suggested... More

I love archeology, and found this museum fascinating. there were no English speaking guides, but for 15 yuan plus a 300 yuan safety deposit (returned at the end) you can rent an English language audio tour. there are 2 museums - one houses artifacts (stone and bone tools and lots of pottery) and the other is the actual excavation site....

I absolutely loved this museum - we had an excellent guide who explained all about the history of the place. It was an unexpected visit that our guide for the terracotta army recommended. It gives detailed information about the Neolithic people who lived there - research is ongoing. It was a unique opportunity of seeing something first hand that I... More

The museum is situated a short distance from the Terracotta museum and so our local guide suggested we stopped by and have a look. I did not have much expectation at first but end up spending about 1.5-2 hours in the museum. The museum is at the excavation site where they found the remains of the village in the Banpo... More

The Xi'an Banpo Museum is a small museum built at the base of an archaeological excavation of Banpo prehistoric site. The museum houses artifacts & buildings from the Banpo Neolithic era. Some buildings are reconstructed to resemble the Neolithic settlement. This lovely museum took us back into the prehistoric time. Definitely a must-see especially if you are visiting the Terracotta... More

If you are planning to visit the terracotta museums, you definitely won't regret sparing like 1 hour plus to stop-by this place, Xi'an Banpo Museum. We were engaged in a one-day tour package where it has this attraction included and we were totally no idea at first. After the tour, we were glad that we had a chance to visit... More

If you are in Xian and going to Terracotta Warriors, this is on the way, and definitely worth stopping at. It is really pretty amazing, when you realize what it is. There also is a attraction called the Banpo Neolithic Village in trip advisor. The relationship between the two is that the this museum is built right at the sight... More

I love history and to be able to see the remains of a real prehistoric village was amazing. Considering how difficult it is to explain and show artifacts from this period of prehistory I thought the museum have done a fabulous job.

It's an immense place with tons of Neolithic artifacts. Well-designed, and also includes an actual archaeological dig site out back. A must-visit.
