This was an amazing museum where you descend down into the building that was built right over the pits. Glass floors let you see the artifacts as they were found. Great animal statues.

It is worth of 9th Wonder of the world. The lagre of mini-terra cotta warriors and animals are wonderful crafts. That shows more infoemation about Han-Dynasty hitory of china.

This recently opened place close to the airport is impossible to reach by public transport, but defeinitely worth a visit.
On display are terracotta army of warriors in about halfsize and notably naked, as the clothes have disappeared over the long time.
The presentation of the artifacts is made in a beautiful way.
Notable is a shop inside selling antiques.
There are several spots and museums.

Partly unearthed museum - 81 burial pits in all with 10 opened featuring ceramic figures. May be my first visit to an archaeological dig that is ongoing and expertly presented. The film mentions that the decision makers have decided to take their time in the unearthing as it was un disturbed for 2000 years, why rush now and not do it correctly. Neat.
Worked out well to visit on way in from airport after arranging a pick up/guide.

My second visit in order to show my wife.
A well thought out underground layout with the glass floors above the pits allowing a good view of the figures in their hundreds including people and animals.
Lighting could be a bit brighter but I assume that they are trying to protect the exhibits.
The "anatomically correct" figurines were interesting and it would have been amazing to see them all dressed correctly thousands of years ago.
This is on the other side of Xian to the terracotta warriors so we did a two day tour, one with the warriors and the sites on that side of town and one here and the sites on this side of town. Otherwise the driving would be excessive.
Well worth a visit.
