This is one of those things that you have to be fascinated about in order to enjoy it. Kids would probably find it incredibly boring especially if the parent isn’t prepared to explain this incredible find. The film was interesting to watch, it explained what...More

Seeing the terracotta warriors was interesting yet not as impressive as I'd hoped. Not quite sure my 6 yr old appreciated it as much as the Tutenkhamen exhibition also in Dorchester .

On a rainy day and being on a family holiday in Dorset I was looking for something to do with my 6 and 4 year olds. When looking online at tickets for this museum an advert sprang up for Gold Saver tickets, where entry could...More

What a disappointment, over priced basically one room split into two sections with replica warriors. Boring 30 minute video about the First Emperor overplayed, awful quality. Waste of time and money don't bother.

The film was very comprehensive and to see the figures (although replicas) added authenticity to the museum. An hour well worth it - it is only small but certainly if packed with great artifacts.

Did 5-1 ticket and all five were small and pretty rubbish. Wish we had saved our money. Souvenirs are cheap rubbish too.

Fulll size replica warriors, along with half size versions to examine more closely. The faces are exquisitely modelled and every one is different. If you have time, be sure to watch the video explaining the history.

We bought the GoldSaverPass (type that into your browser - though I think the ticket can also be bought on the day at the museums). This gives two adults and two children admission to all four/five museums for less than £50. That's less than £15...More

Family visit to Dorchester. This was one of the five museums visited using the Gold Pass. Informative, well laid out and plenty to look at. It is contained in a small space but kept us occupied for over 2 hours. Well Done!
