“A Great Experience and a must see when you visit China.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

Our guide Ping was a fountain of information and showed us the best photography spots. When you first walk in and see the pit it takes your breath away. You can not visit China and not visit the Warriors.

“Awe inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

A must see for anyone visiting China. The farmer who uncovered the first remains of the warriors was in the museum hotel signing books. Try to go when it is not too crowded for a better look.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

Having seen the exhibition in London a few years ago, I couldn't wait to see the actual site where the warriors were unearthed. Amazing sight and interesting to see how the conservationists have to build each warrior back together from lots of small pieces.
Site well laid out and plenty of time to walk around to look at exhibits.

“Short Holiday in XiAn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW via mobile

Terra-Cotta Warriors, the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China. The ticket price per adult is 200RMB. You should calculate at least 3 hours for the look and see trip. The museum is round about 2 hours away from the city center.

“A must see when in China”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW

Although I've researched a lot about the Terracotta Warriors it was something else coming to Xi'an and seeing them for myself. As with any top tourist attraction you have to try and squeeze your way through to take a good photo.

If you want to buy a quality Terracotta statue then the best place is the museum shop, they are happy to knock 20% off but would not drop any further for me.

Apparently there are only 20 Archeologists working on this project at any time, so it will take a very long time indeed to restore all of the warriors.
