Better than the terra cotta warriors

Great underground museum. You walk over the pits and have a great view of the buryed society. Not crowded

This place is over-rated. Only come here if you have extra time on the way to the airport. We made a special trip here after visiting the Terra-cotta warriors. That was a mistake.

I've been to this mausoleum 7 times because the international school at which I work runs a residential trip to Xi'an and this is one of the highlights of our itinerary. The mausoleum is toured by heading down a short ramp then you walk around it in a sort of glass corridor. This is sealed off from the mausoleum itself... More

On a tour as a "little extra" our guide took us to the Han Yang Ling Museum which is situated not far from Xian airport. While the major attraction in the area is the "Terracotta Army" - and this should certainly not be missed - the Han Yang Ling museum is in many ways equally impressive. Housed under a well... More

After Beijing we were in Xian and of course everyone knows the major attraction is the Terracotta Army, however you really shouldn't miss this either, we called in on our way from the airport to our hotel for a few hours. This mausoleum complex dates from a couple of hundred years after the Terracotta Army complex and was built just... More

This is a lovely, uncrowded museum of figurines from a tomb of a Han Dynasty emperor, about a century after the Terra Cotta Warriors. These clay figures are much smaller than life size and do not have the intricate detail. They are presented very nicely in underground pits, and you can walk over the pits and view them through the... More

This attraction seems a bit underrated. We stopped by on the way to the airport, and it was practically empty! They designed this museum well so that you are literally walking on top of glass right over the pits. You get a view of the statuettes that you cannot get with the Terracotta Warriors. The statuettes are miniature size, so... More

This museum is located out near the airport - refreshingly missed by the hoards of tourists - but absolutely well worth the visit especially as you can combine it with seeing the Tomb/Mausoleum of Emperor Jingdi. It serves as an overflow museum for the hundreds of artefacts that were found around his tomb and excellent conservation and reconstruction allows you... More

Visited this museum before the famous warriors and it set the tone for what was to come and helped to put the different rulers/dynasties in perspective.

We visited this site with our private guide and driver after visiting the Terracotta Warriors the day previously. The museum in very well laid out with glass floors that allow one to view the pits below and large windows that run close to the viewing platform. One can also see the excavation much better than with the Warriors. Further, one... More
