Was amazed at the size of this Museum and the various buildings exhibiting the different warriors and their horses and wagons. The main building has the best selection of warriors to see.

are you asking how to get there via public transport? if so, you need to find your way to Xi'an Railway station. Your hostel/guesthouse/hotel should be able to tell you which bus to take. When you reach there, try to look... More
