“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Takes your breathe away when you first enter Pit 1. It was the same emperor who requested the terracotta army as had the Great Wall of China built so he is responsible for two of the great wonders of the world!

“"Terra Cotta Soldiers" – The Museum of Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Travel tip: hire a driver and guide, or just a driver. Be at the museum at the opening, take the tram (5 yuan) eliminating 10 minutes walking and putting you in the door almost immediately.

As you exit into the market area on the right, note the opportunity to dress up as the empress or emperor.. Apparently most Westerners do not do this, although we certainly dress in the Western garb in the states.

If you are there in cherry season, try them. Excellent!

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This should be on everyone's bucket list. It was amazing - we got there fairly early in the morning so it was easy to see everything. It helps to have a good local guide who can explain everything to you and don't miss the noodle house - just watching the chefs is worth the time out for lunch.

“A fascinating sight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Everything you wanted to know about the Terra-cotta warriors and then some. I learned a great deal. It is enlightening to see the warriors in their original condition and how they were arranged and protected long ago.

“Excellent history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

This site was excellent! Since much of Chinas history and artifacts were destroyed during the cultural revolution, it is hard to find original historical artifacts. This site is truly amazing!
