Even though this place is a little more tricky to get to, it seems to me to be at least as interesting as the "main" sight of the Teracotta army. The smaller figures represent the other aspects of courtly life and another dynasty than the Teracotta army. Connected to the the well kept museum area is a shop with a... More

This has to be one of the most underrated places on the face of the earth. Of all the things I visited in Xi'an, this was my absolute favorite. I had an extra hour and a half before I had to leave for the airport, and this was on the way to the city, so I figured I would check... More

This is a must see. You can use public transit otherwise a taxi via your hotel can be pricey. Take Line 2 metro to Shitushuguan (City Library). Across from the metro station is a bus stop. There's an hourly minibus (#4) that will take you directly there. My minibus arrived at 10:30am and was white. Other TRipAdvisor reviewers have said... More

Not as big as the terracotta warriors. Our guide called them the little warriors! It is a very impressive site where a lot of effort has been put into displaying the exhibits in situ and with good explanations. It is a wonderful archaeological site and should be on your list. It is also quieter than the big warriors site.

I had an extra day in Xi-An and was directed here by local friends - the site, which consist of tombs from the Han dynasty, was fascinating, and deserted compared to the Terracotta warrior site. I saw maybe 2 non-Chinese tourists all day. The site is interesting as it consists of more than just military figures - all the various... More

A great deal of money has been spent on this attraction.It is a very modern building in nice grounds that have a feeling of peace.The figures are very small and the building is very dark,fills in a pleasant hour or so on the way to the airport.

This is the little brother of the terra cotta warriors on the way to the airport. This museum is so much smaller than the warriors, but what is there is very interesting. Everything is on a smaller scale than the full size warriors and because of that fact, in much better condition. They learned a lot from unearthing the terra... More
