The warriors are beautiful and the sheer number of them quite extraordinary...but they are viewed from indoor viewing galleries looking down into large pits. The viewing areas are VERY crowded with a lot of pushing and shoving and there is no air conditioning or even...More

Crowds to be expected at the Terra Cotta Warriers, but patience is rewarded with good view of the display. Nice history displays -- well done curation. Explanatory displays tell the story, and the farmer who discovered the warriers can be introduced -- a nice touch....More

We had seen the photo's but seeing this in real life is amazing! The details and the painstakingly slow reconstruction of the worriors makes this a wonder to behold
