“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This is a must see place should you ever visit China. The museum where the Warriors are located is actually built over the area of the field where the Warriors were found. The farmer who first located the Warriors on his land was present when we visited the museum so we were very fortunate. The whole area is a treasure to view and spectacular in all aspects.

“great museum”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

one makes such a big deal about the terra cotta warriors than one can feel a bit disappointed because the expectation is sooo high. so come with normal expectation and you will enjoy it more. the warriors are housed in a big warehouse. there are a lot of people. this is the minus. there are a lot of soldiers . Many are in great shape. and the sheer number of them is impressive. the museum attached to it is very interesting.

“parade”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

sectors 2&3 are small, well organized but with low illumination.
sector 1, the main one, is huge with the parade of the warriors, it's nice to take pictures but my impression was influenced by the not naturality of the show, it takes off something from one of the greatest funeral treasures ever found

“Its a wonder of the world”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We thought it was brilliant, don't go with the expectation that you can walk amongst the warriors. this is a delicate archaeological site. The chinese should be proud of what they have encapsulated here
