Stopped here briefly on the way to see the warriors. Really enjoyed learning about the history of the site, including the clues that archaeologists have found about the Ban Po society that lived here. The museum has many artifacts including pottery and tools.

very old and a little boring but the history is worth the effort to explore and learn, but only if you have some extra time in Xi'an

This was an unexpected side trip on our way to the Terracotta Warriors site, but well worth it. Only downside was the Chinese groups tour guides use of an amplified sound system. Each. Three od#r four tour guides amplified voices bouncing off the walls made our guide's voice inaudible at times. Interesting visit.

This is a site near Xian, where there is original matriarchal village that was excavated in 1960s. Though it is not far from the city center, but very few visitors. Actually it can be visited en route to Terra-cotta Warriors. There are tombs, kiln, ruin of the houses etc. here, the fish pattern on the pottery is really impressive.

For those historically curious, this is an interesting and wonderful spot to visit. Not many tourist visit this place by China standards so you can spend your sweet time admiring and learning about really ancient times of Xian.

If you are interested in the birth of human civilization this site will be right up your alley. Here was a settlement on the cusp of agriculture, a sophisticated society practicing sacrificial rites without the gruesome bloodshed in other ancient cultures.

To be honest, I was not excited about another museum/exhibit visit, but, this was really enjoyable. Nestled in a big green field we entered the museum. We had paid $200 for our drive and guide to take us out to the spot, which was actually back by the airport - a good 40 minute drive from Xi'an centre. Anyway, was... More

This is a small museum with a few interesting exhibits. The information is fully presented in both English and Mandarin but some of the exhibits were repetitious.
