Overcrowded but this is normal in China - easy to explain. This place is a must see but it is extremely repetitive. I am not saying that I didn't admire the history or the architecture but coming from a tourist point of view this place is endless, over crowded but still just beautiful!

When we learned there were no women in Emperor Qin's terracottas but there were in this tomb, we made a detour en route to the airport. The figures are much smaller and were dressed in silk so appear somewhat simplistic compared to the meticulously detailed army. Fascinating to think of the different approaches to the afterlife party. For our top... More

While tourists typically flock to Xi'an to visit the famous Terracotta Warriors, I'd say the next stop in your historical tour should be this museum. While it's not as awe-inspiring as seeing thousands of figures standing at attention in a massive pit, the range of figurines preserved within the museum is fascinating - from pigs, to weavers, to eunuchs, all...

This tomb and the surrounds are worth are great if Chinese history and / or archeology are your thing. If it isn't something that really strikes your interest, then it's going to be a bit 'same same' as the Terracotta Museum and maybe give it a miss unless your on a tour that's already going there. The archeology and history... More

Another fine archeological find in China, so worth a visit, and the exhibits are well-marked with a solid explanation in English. There is a bus from Xi'an, but it's not air conditioned and does not run often; consider hiring a taxi, from the North railway station to save a bit on fare.

As a Westerner it is fascinating to see how other cultures deal with the death of their leaders. I found this trip to be educational.

In many ways, I felt this was more amazing than the terra cotta soldier museum. It is not as crowded as the other museum, and the walkways are plexiglass so you walk over the pits. The majority of the tomb has yet to be excavated, so all you see is a small part of the tomb, but there still is... More

I would have missed this great museum if it wasn't in the tour I organized. A very nice surprise after the visit to the famous terracotta museum. Here you can actually walk over the pits in an air conditioned space with glass floors. The collection shows not only warriors but also various images of the court life of the Han... More

We actually had not heard of this place until our guide recommend us to see. This actually where the Emperor is buried. This was also guarded like the Terracotta warriors. Also get yourself a guide so they can explain the history. So glad we did this.

We had a guide here which did help to explain the fascinating history. The tomb itself is still sealed and this experience is showing the excavations of 10 of the 81 pits which were filled with offerings for the emperors afterlife. The pits are temperature controlled and covered with glass so you can actually walk above them. The lighting is... More
