The museum is located in the same vicinity as the small goose pagoda and can be accessed through the northwestern exit gate. It is not as informative as Shaanxi museum and if you are on a tight schedule, feel free to skip it. Entrance is free and just bring along your passport. *Museum is closed every tuesday*

In comparison with other museums in Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing the museum lacks space and good display. Very crowded and stuffy. Make sure you don't visit on weekend or public holidays.

The museum stands within a beautifully built building with well manicured lawns and fountains. I found the contents to be extremely informative and a great learning of ancient times

The Xian mosque is, as expected, bang in the middle of the muslim quarter. After seeing a number of museum temples, this was the first working place of worship we have seen in China. As a functioning place it is not all pretty and perfect, but it has a very interesting atmosphere, especially after having walked the buzzing Muslim quarter... More

Visited this museum together with a small climb up to the tower. The tower has nothing inside but you can its structure and the city view at the top. You have to pay 30rmb to climb the tower. Museum and park are free of charge. Museum has interesting artifacts and very comfortable to visit.

This museum located by the side of the small goose pagoda is a treasure trove for archaeology lovers. It is divided into well organized sections over 3 floors. Great.

The Xi'an museum is located in the compound of the small wild goose pagoda complex. It can be accessed free of charge, like the small wild goose pagoda, with the same entrance ticket that can be obtained at the entrance of the pagoda, a mere 10 mn walk from Nanxiaomen subway station provided you have your passport with you.
