“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

A truly amazing and impressive sight. Has to be seen to appreciate the scale of what was created here and the detail incorporated in the warrior figures. Was not so impressed with the visit to the 'factory' beforehand which sold everything from replica warriors to furniture, carpets, jewellery etc. but which seems to be an essential part of any tour one takes in most parts of the world.

“Impressive terracotta warriors and horse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

This place is impressive and astonishing, in particular for the detailed faces of the warriors. It is really hard to imagine how different and how many they are. There are three different complex: from the smaller to the bigger is the usual path to see them, otherwise you can be disappointed. Actually the first place is not so enjoyable but soon it gets better. Of course don't over think about this place: the structure where the several statues are located is not so nice to see.
Anyway this place is a must to see and you will not regret it!!

“Most impressive and interesting Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

About one hour away from Xi An you can easily reach the terracotta warriors by public bus (Just take one from in fornt of the railway station).
The sculptures and warriors are so detailed and impressive. And they are more and the museum is larger than I expected. You can also find the Olympic torch from Beijing 2008 in one of the museum buildings.

“Wonderful Warriors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Although the complex that houses the warriors was very busy if you're patient you will get your chance to get a great view of the warriors. There are many tour groups so patience is key to getting closer. Lots of pushing going on but don't take it personal. I was very impressed by the Terra-Cotta warriors, the number, size of the pits. Amazing!

“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

I visited the Terra Cotta Warriors Museum when I was in China 8 years ago. I absolutely loved this place as it was one of the biggest highlights of my visit. Any time I see the Terra Cotta Warriors I still become enamored of them.
