We had this site pretty much to ourselves and were surprised by how well set out it was. I think I enjoyed it more than the Terracotta Warriors. Emperor Jingdi sounded an interesting man as he did so much to improve the life of his subjects (tax cuts, diplomacy over military action and reduced criminal punishments). There are more than...

This is a fascinating place to visit from a historical perspective but perhaps even more interesting is the state of the art way the site has been preserved and presented to visitors. The terracotta animals are amazing. Well worth a visit to compare and contrast with the more famous Terracotta Warriors sight. Probably best visited with a guide but worth... More

Wow, after the terra-cotta warriors who would have thought there was another? Smaller in scale, but more direct and personal, this museum has the smaller burial offerings that are wonderfully touching and evocative of a much different life in China from what we see today

Enjoyed this so much more then the terracotta warriors, primarily because the whole world and his dog wasn't here as well. Super easy to get to: get the subway to the library stop (four to the north from the middle stop where the two lines cross), then get bus number four to the end of the line (2rmb). The museum...

We had never even heard of this site, however found it very interesting and were impressed at how well it has been preserved and set up for visitors to view the dug out sections.

This tomb is different from the others because it is housed in a modern building with glass walkways that look directly down into the excavation. Further into the tomb you actually walk down so you are at eye level with the artifacts. The little wooden warriors may not be as big as the Terra Cotta ones, but the close up... More

Didnt exactly see the tomb itself but the gardens around it were interesting. Put on your trecking shoes. Beautiful area. Pity there was not a tea house there.

100 years after the warriors were built, another king built his tomb.... with miniature warriors. This museum is stunning - modern and temperature controlled; with views of hundreds of 1.5 ft tall "warriors", pigs, horses, dogs, etc... it's a gem that few know of!

The Hanyang ling tome was discovered in 1980s and was proved to be the fourth emperor's tomb of the Han Dynasty which dates back 2000 years ago, the worriors buried inside were amazing, and we were able to walk on the the glass cover to look down to the pits to see them, good museum it is.
