This site is the largest site-museum in China. As I am a guide in Xi'an, this is a must-see place. It would take visitors 2-3 hours inside. This museum includes three pits and i exhibition room. It is recorded that about 8000 warriors were buried. However, only part of these pits has been open. What is good is that visitors can see the on-going excavation work.
tips: also one hour driving from the citycenter
fee:150RMB
PARKING LOT IS ABOUT 20 MINUTES WALKING FROM THE SITE. VISITORS CAN TAKE THE BUGGY INSIDE. BUT VISITORS HAVE TO WALK BACK.
no flash inside

This is a place you must see if you are here. The great army made and destroyed hundreds of years ago. So much history and abilities of the Chinese before modern machinery. The thinking of the great emperors and his people.

If you only could see it properly, but with hundreds of screeming and yelling Chinese around it is difficult. Either come early or dont bother!

The famous warrior army is sureeley the only real match to Egypts ancient wonders. Even if I dont believe they have not been digging into the tomb of the Emperor allready (and found nothing), his army is outstanding. The new museum in the same premisses shows great exebitions and should not be missed, few people only take the time to watch them. The other places are like everything else in China totally overcrowded, so go early and be the first on the spot!

I went to the museum on two different occasions. The first time was at the beginning of August in 2011 during a tour as a tourist. It was very nice because there was hardly any people. I had the museum pretty much to myself but I felt the tour was rushed so I didn't get to enjoy seeing everything at my pace. The second time I'm guessing was during high peak, April 2012. My goodness there was a lot of people, very crowded and a lot of pushing and shoving. We couldn't take picture without people getting in the way. We couldn't see the displays. Other than that it was good. The Pits and displays of the warriors were amazing. There are a lot of artisans outside with very good souvenirs and trinkets. Also the food was delicious.
