There are three sites to visit. The first exhibit is the largest and most impressive. Also very crowded. We paid to go closer to the exhibit in a space with no other people than our group. We had to order some photos, which was worth the money since we could actually see the warriors and horses without being jostled by... More

We had a personal guide hired by "Insider Journeys". The guide was invaluable. Without a guide it is just a loads of statues, but a personal guide opens up a vision of the history and fascinating insights to he place. Many people went in large groups and shouted over each other making a very loud background noise. Not for the... More

impressive but very very crowded unfortunately during the summer plus the usual touristy shops and fast food chains. Strangely enough the site is covered but without air conditioning.

You can't visit Xi'an without a visit to the terra-cotta warriors. Wonderful experience. All under cover over three sites.

I'm not sure why so many tour guides have people go to Exhibit/room 1 first. While exhibits/rooms 2 and 3 are still worth seeing, 1 is by far the best and breathtaking. Make sure to save it for last. Be prepared for the crowds and the tourist trap picture spots. You are sure to remember to first glance you have... More

The site is large and the excavations are protected with walls and roofs which also were a welcome protection from the hot sun on a plus 30 degree day. The soldiers and horses are so life-like - the detail is amazing. It was interesting to see the work going on in one of the pavilions as the workers attempt to... More

Very impressive to see 'live and in the flesh'. Had little concept of just how large this place is. And like every place of note in China - it's crowded. So please be prepared to jostle for position to view....

Fantastic place to visit and not to be missed if you are in Xian. The sheer size of this Muesum is amazing and I can understand why the are calling it the Eigth wonder of the world.
