Modest Museum with Nice Collection
Jan 2020
This is smaller than the museums in Shanghai and Beijing but it has a decent collection of statutes, bronze bells, carvings, funerary mausoleums, and a good collection of Terra Cotta warrior clay items including a life sized set of carriages.
Worth a visit for those interested in Chinese history without being overwhelmed. Set in a beautiful park like area with flowering trees and duck ponds. Very picturesque.

A good preamble to the terracotta warriors
Nov 2019 • Couples
Call it an opportunity to walk off all that food from the Muslim quarters and learn some history before dinner and preamble to tomorrow. The basement of the museum showcases the history of Xi’an and how far the Silk Road stretches - from Xi’an to Athens and beyond.

In the Gardens is a bell tower located on the premises is an engineering and architectural phenomenon. During its lifetime, it’s split down the middle 3 times and still able to ‘heal’ itself.

Xian Museum
Nov 2019
We visited the Xian Museum while we were in Xian. While not as fascinating as the Terra Cotta Warriors site - What could possibly be? - The museum was quite interesting even though I felt, that there was a limited number of exhibitions on display. I found the extensive collections of the Silver and Jade exhibitions to be the most interesting and well worth a visit to the Xian Museum.

Limited exhibit halls open during winter
Dec 2019 • Family
Visited Xi'an museum together with the Small wild goose pagoda since they share the same park & entry ticket (which is free with passport ID).

Spacious airy building with bright central skylight.

Took less than 40 mins to see the silver export collection, Buddha statuary, jade articles and a floor model of Chang'an city design. Quite a few major exhibit halls were closed for maintenance - perhaps due to low winter season.

The garden is beautiful and the museum also nice to see. We took about 1 hour to visit the museum . It is free entrance. The museum's garden is connected to the Small Goose Pagoda Museum.

Modern Building Museum
Sep 2019 • Couples
This is a modern building museum with well maintained garden. Free entry and easy access as compared to Shaanxi History Museum. The collections are relatively less impressive than Shanxi History Museum, which include some Chinese Calligraphies, Buddha statues, Terracotta Warriors, etc. There is a small wild goose Pagoda nearby which is worth to check it out. It was built in 8th century during Tang Dynasty where was the main centre of translating Buddhism text brought from India. Worth to visit especially if you are into Chinese history.

Interesting Collection
Oct 2019
When we visited there was a display on silver works produced by local artisans for the export market along with jade items, relics from the nearby buddhist pagoda and a full gallery on the history of Mao's rise to power, Unfortunately the latter had no English translations.

The history of the museum and the Wild Goose Pagoda
Jan 2019
The whole experience was amazing. The history our guide talked about was so interesting. The museum showed the ancient history of Xi'an in the Tang Dynasty. It had models of cities, pottery figures, so many cultural objects. Everything was so detailed. Very interesting. We were there when they were decorating for the 2019 New Year Celebrations. Breathtaking. The gardens were so beautiful. We were with a small tour of 5 people. Enjoyed our visit.

When you visit the amazing Small Wild Goose Pagoda, you will have the opportunity, for free, to visit the Xian Museum. I have to say that I am grateful for this opportunity to understand Xian or Chang'an better.

Exhibit are presented bilingualy so anyone can enjoy the richness of the history and the culture. The volunteers are really great help and they were fully committed to their duties.
