“Too busy to see much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

What we could see looked great, but we couldn't see much. It was Chinese holiday period and every square foot was filled with people. We left pretty quickly.

“Probably could not be any more impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

It was not the facilities, or the staff which made this location impressive. It is the fact that the warriors have not been moved to a museum far removed from where they were found, but rather, that the structure has been built around them in situ. The warriors themselves are astounding, the history is of their loss and discovery is wonderful. To add to this, they people continue to work as you are there. Very impressive.

“Clay Army”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

We spent an afternoon there which was nowhere near enough time to either see or absorb it all. It's on our must re-visit list.
AWESOME and awe inspiring!

“Pick up the bus near the Train Station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

You can go by bus picking it up near the train station. It will cost you only 7 rmb to arrive to the museum. Once there, the entrance ticket will cost you around 150 rmb. Take care... if you are occidental they want you to pay more money for almost everything... At the exit of the Terra-cottas you will find restaurants to eat. The best path is going first to the Museum, then to the pavilion number 2, then 3, and leave the main one for the last visit. Enjoy!
