Before the 'main event' I had the good fortune to have my hosts take me here. Not as spectacular but still fascinating, with thousands of small terra cotta figures, with many different types of animals be the star attactions for me.

Very interesting insight into the Han dynasty, which you don't often get. The minature terracotta officials were neat, and all the other artifacts they've found were similarly interesting. It is a bit of a walk from the "underground musuem" to the collection of artifacts, but worth it. The site of the sacrificial altar is not much unless you have a... More

This is near airport, if you do go there then perhaps better to do it before you go to see the Terracotta Army, not as grand but still interesting.

This is actually a very interesting site and well worth a visit. This site is far less traveled and can be completed in an hour or less. My only issue is that the area you walk through is completely shrouded in glass and you must wear shoe covers because the floor is also see through glass. While this sounds interesting,... More

We were delighted to visit the tombs at this site as a prelude to all the other sites on our whistle-stop three day excursion to Xi'an. We were well prepared in advance for the main attraction of the life-size warriors we were to encounter the next day.

This smaller museum greatly complements the terracotta warriors. Although less visually stunning than the terracotta warriors, this museum provides a greater insight into the history and background of the former, and should be visited after the other site.

First go to visit this place and than the Terracotta warriors. I recommend you to to do as I mentioned, otherwise you could be really disappointed. This place is as far as Terracotta warriors from the city center and it is actually a big underground museum. IT could be interesting if you have a passion for this kind of thing... More

This is the last item on our Xian trip and we wanted to see what the supposedly first ever large scale underground museum in the world will look like. We came away very impressed with the whole structures and the items on display although the actual tomb remains closed to this day. Do not miss this museum on your way... More

Having seen the Terracottas, this tomb seems boring. With lots of small wooden puppets. There are many other tombs to explore. I would give this place a miss if time is limited

I will be completely honest, I was somewhat underwhelmed by the Terracotta Warriors. Don't get me wrong, I find the discovery and history of the warriors themselves absolutely amazing, it is just that for the total cost and the distance from Xi-an there is not a great deal to see at the actual site that isn't in photos you have...
