Good collection of artefacts in here. Lots of Buddhist collections too plenty to see We didn't spend too long in here but you could spend quite a while in there but we're not massively into museums so we looked at what we wanted to and then went off to see the small goose pagoda.

You can go this museum along with your trip to small wild goose pagoda. There is no entry fee (unless you want guided tour). This covers lot of history about Changan. Xian was known as Changan in ancient time. The museum is well managed and artifacts are displayed properly.

Xian Museum is free ticket if you showed your passport and connect for the small pagoda temple, but no English information inside the museum. it's good place to see a Ancient monk scuplture and tools.

My daughter and I really enjoyed wandering around the museum. My advice? Leave the tour guide behind. They just want to rush you through it and you'll miss more than half what's in here. Go on your own and enjoy!

Free entry to museums really say something about a country, one of them being about how much emphasis is placed on its culture. This museum was situated inside a "park" where both the actual museum and the buildings in the park spoke about the lengthy history of China. I loved the architecture and the interior design of the museum. It... More

You should go there because it's free and glamorous. But you have to register your name with passport at the entrance. You ought to go on weekdays since you can walk without crowded people. However it is not a huge museum, you can visit through in 1-2 hours or less.

A great museum to learn more about the history of X'ian, the province, and its people. Definitely recommended prior to other major sites.

A very informative museum - I learnt a lot about Chinese history including the terracotta warriors which I visited the next day. Allow at least an hour here. Good for a rainy day and clean toilets
