Well worth the visit, not many tourists come here. Similar pits with burial artefacts it is different to the Warriors, if your in the area take the trip.

Based on history the tomb has not been excavated due to the delicate nature of the ruins. So, this is a smaller tuned down replica version of what they think it would look like. Do not be fooled by the limo drivers to try to take you here. If you want a history lesson and look at the manufactured ruins,... More

Really worth the visit. We cisited 13 years ago and the site visite conditions have even improved. The only dark spot is the ibligation now to go into huge commercial centers prior to acces. Really one of unmissables of China.

I liked it much more than the terracotta warriors (overly crowded and overly hyped up). This had a lot more interesting things to see: underground museum with interesting doll-sized figures (human and animal), expansive grounds to walk around, mounds of the emperor and empress, ruins, etc. I liked that there were a lot less people there too, didn't feel like...

This museum is built over the excavated pits of Han Yang Ling - the tomb of Emperor Jingdi of Han Dynasty. Everything is left as it is; you feel like you have entered after the archaeologists had excavated the place. I am deeply impressed by this format of presentation - it lets the visitor have a very close-up view of... More

Definitely worth stopping of you have hired a driver to take you to or from the airport. Movie is pretty cool. Reminds me of Jurassic Park. You'll know what I mean if you see it. This is very different than TCW. This is burial site of one of the Han Dynasty Emperors. Not sure if it is worth special trip... More

After the Terracotta Warriors, this was a bit of a let down. The tomb and figurines were underground as many places are, but these figures were quarter scale or thereabouts, and just didn't compare with the full scale Terracotta Warriors. The time would be better spent adding to the Terracotta Warriors exhibit time.

Very good museum. Oldest tea leaves found there is 2000 years old in Guinness book of records. This mausoleum is one of 12 found in that area from the Han dynasty. This museum allows you to get close to the artefacts. Recommend getting a Mandarin speaking museum guide for RMB100 as they can tell you a lot more about the... More

This museum is a must-see when in Xian. The underground museum feels almost ghostly and is very educational (especially compared to the Terracotta Warriors). Take a walk to the South Tower for a small exhibition on the importance of towers in China. Also, its easy to get there just take exit D at ShiTushuGuan subway station and find bus no.... More
