Great place to spend the day with your children...or grandchildren. If you live in the area, expositions are changed so you can repeat your visits.

Intend to visit China in the future but what a wonderful experience to actually see these warriors in person. Fun to play with replicas and attempt to make warrior "faces" out of clay. Parents, this is a wonderful experience for children with their exhibits - unfortunately warriors exhibit ended. However, the dinosaurs and other miniature exhibits is a wonderful way... More

Went to see the Tara Cotta Warrior exhibit, it was wonderful, so worth the drive. They had several on display and the entire exhibit was very interesting. Our first time at the museum, I can see why it has such high ratings, it's an awesome place. A beautiful Dale Chihuly displace was amazing. A great place for children and adults... More

This museum has to be the best museum for children (and adults) in the US! Information is presented in a unique and enjoyable manner.

When my husband and I met, we'd discussed all of the places out of state that we'd been as children. Oddly enough, coming from Ohio, we'd both been to this museum. We decided to return together with our children. Ever since then, when I ask my kids where they want to go for their birthdays, I always know they're going... More

I went with 5 adults and 2 children. The kids were a great excuse to visit a really fun museum. We saw the Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit, which was such a treasure. The museum is obviously kid friendly, but not a chore for the adults that accompany them. Absolutely worth your time.
