It is 35 years since I was last here. The grounds are spotless, there are places to sit, disabled access. There are plenty of signs and "story boards" in English. Very impressed. There are now 3 Pits open. Not to be missed

Lots of people but well worth the visit. Nothing can prepare you for the sights that wait for you. The artistry, the size, the number of them is mind blowing

The place is very crowded in July and August, but it's definitely worth a visit. It's a breathtaking experience. The museum (the halls) is very well organized and clean. Just take a tour and enjoy the visit to history!

Don't like the queues to get in, but worth it when you finally see thus amazing piece of history. It was made worthwhile when I also got to meet one of the original farmers who uncovered this phenomenal piece of history.

We visited the terracotta warriors from Xian and it took about an hour to get there. Beforehand we visited a factory in Lintong that makes the terracotta warriors today and also produces lacquered furniture and globes which was interesting. When you have bought the tickets you have the choice of a golf-buggy ride or a walk past lots of shops.... More

The best part was watching the workers restoring the warriors. You can't get very close to them, but they are still incredible. When I heard they were all different, I didn't realize that meant all different heights, builds, and uniforms. That was incredible. The film in the round theater was not that great. It seemed like it was old super... More

We visited the Museum as, for me, the key element of a twelve day tour. We had seen a selection of the figures when they were exhibited at the British Museum a few years back but being in proximity to this army, the numbers and the diversity of the figures, rank on rank, that was something else.
