“A Unique Experience”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

There are 3 covered pits to view plus a gift shop/intro movie in the round plus a restaurant. The movie, shown in 360 degrees while you stand, is just ok but would be improved by the doors being closed so there is more darkness. It's only about 10 minutes though. The farmer who discovered the warriors was in the gift shop signing autographs of his book. The "pits" were amazing. A guide is really helpful to understanding the full experience. The restaurant was a semi-buffet with 2 types of noodles, cold stuffs, desserts and several types of hot foods plus tea, coffee or a soft drink for about 65 rmb ($11 US). It was worth it, if you are there at a meal time.

“Impressive”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Impressive when seen on TV, and immensely more so in person, and to think so far only a small fraction of the figures have been uncovered. Come and see it, you won’t be disappointed.

“Amazing To See”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Seeing the Terracotta Warriors was absolutely amazing. I must admit that I thought the 'hanger' like building they were in would be in a field somewhere so I was a little surprised to see an entire township built up around it, such as shops and restaurants, making it very commercial but I suppose that is to be expected. It didn't detract from the wonder of this ancient find.

Worth to visit, it is near Emperor Qin mausuleum but not yet opened the tumb, it is only a park. Taxi may charge 400RMB to take you there.

“Must See”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

This is a major tourist attraction, so expect crowds. Having said that it is a mind blowing experience. The story of how all these warriors lay undiscovered for overa 1000 years is incredible. China is such an extraordinary place which we in the west hardly know anything about. They had an advanced civilisation when we were still living in the trees and painting ourselves with woad.
