The only the genuine part is the pagoda. The rest of the surrounds were built about 3 years ago , but great job and looks very authentic.

I visited only the pagoda, I wasnt interested in the museum. The pagoda is really nice, is worth it, and you will see a lot of small temples and amazing art pieces made out of Jade.

It was interesting, but we were still in awe of the warriors, maybe if a person went here first it would have been more impressive, but since everything was wonderful, I would not have wanted to miss even this.

When we were there, the museum was hosting a truly sensational display of Bhudda statues, relics, and artwork. Apparently it hosts a lot of select exhibitions, so find out what's on and if of interest, don't miss it

The "Small" Goose Pagoda was just a little smaller than the Large Goose Pagoda and is no longer in daily use. The grounds were awesome, the Pagoda leans (look at it carefully), the artist shops were excellent with great prices. Be sure to swing the log and ring the "Bell" to call your neighbors to arms! Very cultural experience to... More

The museum is phenomenalt. So much history from just thed Xian area including prehistoric finds and pottery from over 8,000 years ago. At the pagoda we had an experinece of them having a master scribe on site who translated our grandchildren's names and a special wish on rice paper for us to take home to our kids. Very special experience.

It attracts less tourist that Shaanxi History Museum and has few nice exhibitions. Also the park next to the pagoda is calm and peaceful. Over all I liked it better than Shaanxi.

Lots of historical treasures that are worth checking out at your own leisure and you realize that it's definitely worth spending time there. Seeing is believing.... Need I to say more???? Of course after the museum, you can make a quick trip to check out the pagoda.

As might be expected, this is designed mainly for tourist but the presentations were beautifully done, varied and with wonderful music. Food was fair but you come for the show.

An absolute surprise in Xi'an, excellent examples of Chines art through the ages, well presented. There were some unusual examples of folk art, e.g. art on donkey skins, etc.
