“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Impressive when seen on TV, and immensely more so in person, and to think so far only a small fraction of the figures have been uncovered. Come and see it, you won’t be disappointed.

“Amazing To See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Seeing the Terracotta Warriors was absolutely amazing. I must admit that I thought the 'hanger' like building they were in would be in a field somewhere so I was a little surprised to see an entire township built up around it, such as shops and restaurants, making it very commercial but I suppose that is to be expected. It didn't detract from the wonder of this ancient find.

“Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

This is a major tourist attraction, so expect crowds. Having said that it is a mind blowing experience. The story of how all these warriors lay undiscovered for overa 1000 years is incredible. China is such an extraordinary place which we in the west hardly know anything about. They had an advanced civilisation when we were still living in the trees and painting ourselves with woad.

“Deserved to be another wonder of the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

When in China, Terracotta Worriers museum is a must to see, and really to spend time viewing each pitt, each worrier, each horse commissioned by Emperor Qin (2,000 years ago). Sadly, my group walked through a bit too fast...had they known that it took nearly 40 years and several thousands of lives lost from building this tomb of several hundred thousands of life-sized claysolders and horses, they might have dedicated a bit more time to appreciate both the terror (from the tyrant emperor) and the incredible human creativity and ability for such a monumental legacy left behind for us to witness. As of now, more than 7,000 pieces have been unearthed. Do not forget to stop by at the cinema, to watch a free 15-minute documentary in English. The ground, lawns and trees are well kept; take time to stroll around to appreciate how vast this tomb area is, with a mountain in the backgroun. And, there's no need to take the electric cart from the gate unless you can't really walk. Many shops on the way out to the parking lot once you leave the museum area. This is my second time visiting Terracotta museum and I still enjoyed and appreciated what I saw very much.
