This was a great Place to visit and a must do in Xian, As you can read on most of the other Reviews this is a great Place to visit, Even met the farmer who found it 1974, he was signing books, You can find guides outside, for 2 hours its 150 RMB it is Worth it.

This museum alone was worth the 6hr trip on the G-train from Beijing to Xian. We stayed near the subway stop in town, then took the bus to the main train station. Most hotels can lead you in the right direction. From there we took a bus, over 1hr drive to the Terracotta Warrior museum. Tho we arrived late in... More

Even if you look at pictures, read all the material it is still very impressive to see it first hand. Magnificent history, incredible craftsmanship in restoring such an important world heritage

So much to see and take in, an unbelievable experience. The facility is modern and organized. The tour encompasses all open pits for visitors to see. The displays are at a very high level.

The facility is excellent, with a very high standard of display. All areas are clean and well kept. A truly amazing sight. I would definitely recommend having a guide (English speaking guides are available if needed). There is a lot of walking outside especially if you visit the Emperor's tomb - so dress appropriately! Note: according to the guide at... More

We visited at the end of March, taking a regular taxi from Xi'an for just 100RMB (about £10) for the 1 hour ride. There appeared to be surprisingly few visitors, no queues at ticket offices ( and for any foreigners over 70 years old entry is FREE on presentation of passport!) It's a longish walk to the Pits, and for... More

Finally understand the scale of this discovery. Had the opportunity to have a photo with the farmer who discovered these Warriors. We spent a whole morning visiting the 3 pits and then had lunch at the restaurant.

I was here in 2004, it is now bigger and better than ever. Sure, pit 3 is like an airport but the warriors are the attraction. A truly great world standard attraction. I recommend getting a bus there - only 8 yuan from the Eastern square in front of the main station. Plenty of buses with "Xi'an train station ->... More

There were two attractions I knew for sure I wanted to see in China; the Great Wall and the Terracotta Warriors. I was truly amazed by both. We had a wonderful tour guide, Nancy Song who did a remarkable job of imparting the history of the Warriors and the efforts to restore them. We visited the various tombs and saw... More
