“The nice place to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

we can see the ancient things by the glass and i like the movie there so much
This museum is on the way to airport ,maybe it's quite convient to visit beofre you leave Xian or just after you arrived Xian
and i suggest you to read something about Han Dynasty and Silk road before you go there
and i like the ancient clothes style there too, most museum guide dress that and it's China traditional clothes

“great side trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

worth going to this site. It has thousands of small figures - human and animals, in an underground site. Very well built and presented.

“Loved the glass floors - up close and intimate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

One to do as well as, rather than instead of, the terracotta warriors. Because the models are much smaller than their better-known counterparts, it makes sense to do them first or they would be a bit of an anti-climax.

It's near the airport, so an ideal stop-off when you arrive. And it's much, much quieter, so an easier place to learn about the reasons for the models before hitting the relative chaos of the terracotta warriors.

Finally, though smaller, you actually feel the models are closer to you - as you view them from a glass floor built directly over the excavation pits. Worth seeing.

“Great way to show the pits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

This was a very interesting stop on the way to the airport . They have preserved the pits surrounding the empowers tomb very well and you can walk over glass floors above the pits where they buried all the things the empower would need in the next life. Very well presented.

“What the terracotta warriors museum should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

A very well presented underground museum which lets you get very close to the artefacts (you feel like you are walking in the pits, or on top of the artefacts, as you are separated by a glass.

Entrance was 80rmb, even though it was advertised as 90rmb.

There is a separate museum called the archaelogical hall, which seems to be old and not as interesting as the underground museum. This is 800m away from the underground museum, you can take a free golf buggy shuttle.

When I visited, the museum was deserted, compared to the terracotta warriors site, this site was a better experience. It felt like there were more foreigners than local tourists.

The museum is close to the airport and can be visited on the way to the airport.
