Well developed and maintained. Great to see the resurrection work being done. Also the overall museum has good facilities, including a decent lunch restaurant. Clean and interesting.

To get the best impression start the tour from backside and not at the big hall first since then everything else will be not so impressive anymore.

When you first arrive you get to view a 360 theater with 6 screens. 2 of the 6 screens we not working. Our guide was lousy and gave minimal information. The soldiers was interesting but things could have been better.

You can see the pictures, but they don't prepare you for the enormity of the real thing. I didn't realize that all the warriors, horses, and other artifacts were pieced together from millions of shards, over a number of years by archeological experts from all...More

Lying aout an hour from Xian, the warriors cover a huge site. Try and not pick a day when the rest of China is also there.....ity can get horrendously busy and this will spoil the effect. However, they arer a wonder to behold!

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
