“A wet morning in Xi'an!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Perhaps I got less out of this because of the very english weather we were treated to that morning! The pagoda was ok-just! I'm crtain it would have looked better in sunshine. Inevitable renovation going on on site!

Museum was better and an excellent escape from rain!

“City plan for 1,000 years long, from Qin to Ming Dynasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

A great place to spend for one afternoon in Xian. If you are interested in City PLan, the exhibition for Xian city plan from Qin, Han, Sui, Tang and Ming Dynasty with different locations is worthwhile to visit

“Part of 14 day tour of China with Travel China Guide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

You might well OD on museums in China, but each is different. The key is to visit at your own pace and try to have a guide that knows the history if possible. We did not rent the earphones available and that might have been worthwhile, but we did not want to spend time at EACH display. Our guide pretty much suggested we roam through the museum for an hour and then we walked through park at the Small Goose Pagoda. This area is undergoing some construction (possibly rebuilding some original walls) but is a very nice park and worth the visit. You can visit both in 2 - 3 hours or spend the day - your call

“Fascinating collection of artifacts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

The museum has a wonderful collection - nice peaceful location in the middle fo the city. surrounded by gardens and water with the small goose pagoda - lovely location. The surrounding area had a lot of construction going taking place around the shops and gardens - once that is done it will be a nice place again.

“Set in lovely gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Visited here with a tour, saw the pagoda and below it is a museum demonstrating how the Chinese use to write on silk, lovely paintings and they will write your name on a silk painting to buy or you can have your name written on rice paper for free.
