Little bit of a drive to get here and was quite crowded but was an amazing museum. Takes most of the day to see it all. Met and got a picture with the man who discovered it digging a well.

A must see to check your bucket list if you are in Xian. These life size baked clay aka terracotta warriors are uniquely crafted and supposedly no two of the terracotta have the same expressions. It's quite intriguing that Emperor Qin had wanted to even bring along an army to his afterlife. What tourists get to see here are not... More

It is hard to fathom just how incredible this site is without seeing it for yourself. We have all seen photos, and maybe documentaries on this site, but to see it in real life is just awesome! Over 6000 warriors are known to be at the site, and the archeologists and restorers have restored just over 2000 of the Warriors... More

It is amazing to learn about the history and see the Terra-cotta warriors in person. My kids thought it was really cool also.

We have just been to see the Terracotta Warriors and we were spell bound. It's worth the trek getting there. The first and largest hanger has about 400 sculptures inside and is most impressive. You look down on the army, get there early in the morning, the light makes for fantastic Colours and photos. Take a camera with a zoom.... More
