A place where you will feel that human can do so much to maintain its legacy. Every terracotta warriors are modeled on real soldiers. I was also told that there are more to dig and conserve. A fascinating historical place to visit.

The Terracotta army is one of the worlds greatest sights. I was lucky to see exhibition before the tourists arrived back in 1993 and again now. Select the off season to go an see the exhibition otherwise it could be very crowded.

This is my second visit in 10 years (2004 - 2014). The outer area had been enlarged so it took about a 10-minute walk to the main buildings. All are still well maintained, and there is even a 3-D photo studio if you'd like to take picture with the warriors. You could also get your souvenir book signed by one... More

....after seeing so many Hollywood movies featuring the Terra-cotta warriors you expect something larger than life, but The actual place falls sort of short of that promise. What is actually impressive about the museum is the work that went into excavating all the warriors and the work to get the broken pieces together (you can actually see some parts where... More

The Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses Museum was everything and more it is made out to be. You cannot comprehend the extent of the number of individual and unique statues in the three pits that have been uncovered. To think that there are around 600 pits that have yet to be unearthed makes this historical site just mind blowing. It... More

Brilliant. Despite reading lots about the Terra-Cotta Warriors and watching several documentaries nothing can prepare you for the seeing the real thing. Outstanding

Well worth the trip from Beijing. Well organized infrastructure and display. A must see. We had some apprehensions about our tightly packed itinerary. We had arranged an English speaking guide (Bryan, also reviewed) and car for a days sightseeing and it all worked out well.

We did the Emperor's Tomb prior to going into the site and then viewed the warriors and horses by buildings 2, 3 and then 1.

The Terra-Cotta warriors/horses are fascinating. This faux army was made to "guard" the emperor, and was left undestroyed by the Red Army. A Xi'an farm came across the clay arm of what turned out to be a soldier, unburied it only to discover that there was a veritable army of terra cotta soldiers buried in formation in the ground. Each... More
