The visit to the Terracota Army was the highlight of our Xi'an trip. Can't miss going there. Tip: Go early

Wow!!!! Realization of longtime dreams come true! This is the most amazing (and moving) place to visit! Pictures in magazines and on film simply can't do justice to the incredible display in situ. I would happily have spent a couple of days at this museum....More

We have been here in Saturday. Only we saw were back of Chinese people. There were large groups and blocked the way, taking pictures. Tickets office has explanations only in Chinese, unfriendly staff. It's better to see it on websites. Don't loose your money.

We were lucky. Our hosts had arranged a private guide who was knowledgeable if a bit bossy. "You take photos here" & "You do not take photos here!" The site was chosen for its feng shui qualities and is notable for being the first time...More

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
i am thinking of visiting here with a 5 and 8 year old in september, and wonder how much time i should allow for a visit to the museum?

The museum is very crowded. Most exhibits might be difficult for them to view. Try to get there early to avoid the big, big crowds. I agree with Gabriele: how long are their attention spans and how long will they enjoy... More
