Very nice museum. I'm happy our group visited this museum. It was a good extension of the terra cotta warriors site.

I guess there are a few extra bits and pieces in here, nice pottery and silks exhibits, but all the surrounding towns seem to have very similar museums, nothing special.

The museum is well organised with helpful multi-lingual explanations. What it helps one to understand is not just the context for the Terracotta Warriors but the ethnic and cultural mix that contributed to the creation of Chinese history and culture, quite remarkable

It's hard to get around to everything in the museum and this no different. However it is the first museum I have come across with a kids crèche. Lovely, clean and cool. They have some amazing artifacts.

This was a visitor's dream! Hardly anyone there opposed to the Shaanxi Historical Museum. Although a bit smaller, allow a good hour and a half. Beautiful pieces in this museum. If time is limited, favour this museum over the Historical one, you will not regret it. The Small Pagoda grounds are worth seeing too. Enjoy!

Great place to see the history of the Terra Costa warriors and how there were built. Also how over the years there were buried and unearthed by a local farmer.

Go on weekdays not weekends as it gets very busy. The history is very interesting so it better with a guide to talk you through it
