“Don't forget your passport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

This is a great restful place to relax. The pagoda has great views but mind your head as the headroom on the stairs shortens as you climb. The museum is nice but not as elaborate as the provincial museum. Your admission is free if you show your passport a ticket office.

“Small goose pagoda in autumn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

The park around the pagoda is tranquil and worth spending time in. The pagoda is impressive and obviously ancient. We were there in the afternoon as the sun was setting and the walk around the pagoda was beautiful. The yellow leaves were a great backdrop to an old building.

“Ok Pagoda + interesting free city museum !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

You have to paid 30 rmb to climb until the rooftop of the small pagoda, from there you got a nice view around, on the little park next door + the Xi’an Museum. Than I visited the Xi’an Museum, you got many artefacts from the past including statues, paintings, clothes, ceramics, … You got a big maquette scale of Xi’an, how it use to be before. Quite interesting. I recommend this museum and on the top it’s free. Why not visit.

“Island of Peace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Compare with the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, this was a place of peace. We enjoyed the park around the Small Goose Pagoda, this was really relaxing and not as crowded as the Dayan Pagoda. The Xi'An museum is a modern building with interesting architecture and spacious interior.
Free entry with foreign passports, the tower has another entry fee. Well worth a visit.

“Better than the big one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

A really interesting architectural structure. It looks older than it is. Easy to add to your trip to Xian and worth a flying visit.
