“Great museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

It was great to see all these statues in person and to learn about how they were all made. One of the farmers who was digging the well who discovered the soldiers is at the museum. If you buy the book about the Terracotta soldiers he will sign it for you. This is a definite must to see if you visit China.

“My favorite attraction in China”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Words cannot express how overwhelming it is when you enter Pit #1 and see all of those soldiers. I was surprised that the pit was covered (ventilated but not air-conditioned). Also, there are more soldiers still not uncovered. This project is ongoing. Pit #3 is air-conditioned. Don't skimp on time...give yourself plenty of time. Our guide said the farmer signing books by the movie is the real one. Give him 20 yuan, and he'll let you take his picture after he signs your book.

“Fabulous place to visit, great history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This place is a great place to visit, rich in history, and breathtaking views of thousands of these clay life sized warriors facing you once you arrive in the buildings (football field size), just huge! Take a lot of pictures!

“Terra cotta army”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

I had been expecting to be overwhelmed and I was. The site is enormous and the painstaking reconstruction is a huge undertaking that will take man y many years to complete
The surroundings have been sympathetically and tastefully done given the aura of a tranquil garden. I can well see why the Chinese refer to it as the eight wonder of the world

“Amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Truly amazing! If you're lucky enough you might meet one of the farmers in the souvenir store. Do take the time look around, the place is huge.
