2000 warriors have been uncovered and on display along with numerous horses. Apparently there is another 8000 to be uncovered but the archeologists are waiting for technology to protect the paint once they are opened to the air. Truly amazing.

The drama of the magnitude of it is an experience you can't capture in photos. Each face is different and the slow process of artifacting with such care is evident. China has spent a lot of money making this an important site. Worth the visit...More

The indoor part of the museum was not very big. The main part is awesome. It is the size of a stadium.

Easier to stay in Xian with a range of accommodation types than in the site. It is only a shortish car ride to the pits and then allows access to all the other material around the old quarter
