The story of the terra cotta soldiers, how they came to be there, how they got discovered, and the way they have been preserved and are being restored is a site not to be missed on any visit to China. It takes about 3 hours to see the whole site, and a one hour car ride from Xian each way. Well worth it, even if you are not particularly interested in archeology. The way the government has chosen to showcase this discovery is quite modern and western in many ways.
