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.

There's not much to see except some human remains and artifacts. It only took me less than 30 minutes for me to walk through the site.

This museum was part of a 2 day mini bus tour and is built at the base of the archeological site. There were excavated buildings, reconstructed houses and artifacts. Also pottery making and burial section. I'm glad we had a great guide who explained what we were looking at and told us stories of how the people at the time... More

Unless you're really interested in archeology, or have a guide with you, there's not much to see here. The displays really need more descriptive labels on them beyond just their chinese names. Give this a place a miss, and save your time for elsewhere.

You get to see the early 4000bc early human in china. It's a maternal society when women were the head of households. Interestingly, they do nt have a concept of mono partner and I think this is really interesting to know they were such a open society compared to ours. ;)
