“It is gd for short time drop traveller, 20 mins away from airport”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

It is gd for traveller if just have 1-3 hrs to stay in Xian, it is near to the airport, and can spend 1-1.5 hrs in the underground museum. The underground museum has a mm automatic machine for providing briefing. Although it cannot compared with Qin Terra-cotta, but it is worthwhile for short time drop traveller to spend time.

It is 20 mins from airport.

It is a pity that one of the museum (I.e. The Southern part) is under maintaince n construction, so nothing can be seen there)

The entrance fee is RMB 80

“Surprise Experience”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

When we first got there (we had a private guide, so I am not familiar with any transportation to this site) and just saw huge earth mounds, we thought, here is a waste of time.....but this is an amazing site, as you walk underground to an incredible display of smaller figures then the Terra Cotta warriors. These were made 1/3 size of humans, and you walk on glass floors above the pits. It is a very clever display, and an eye opener to that time in Chinese history.
It is actually closer to the airport, so it is better to see it, right after the flight to Xian, the way we did it with our guide. it is a very impressive display, and museum, good for about an hour and half or so, depending on your interest level, but definitely worth seeing, especially if you are planning to see its 'big brother' the Terra Cotta Warriors.

“Much better than it's more famous neighbour....”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I would agree with many of the comments already posted here - much better than the Terracotta Warriors in my opinion. Just wanted to add that getting here by public transport is not hard. Take the subway to the City Library stop and exit on the Library side. You will see the bus stop for bus 4 just outside. There are 8 buses per day (times on the back of the sign). The bus costs 2Y each way. Just watch out for the scrum on the way back - although the Chinese do queue for some buses, they seemed a little more twitchy on this one as it does not run as frequently as others! No problem on the way there, but for the return, I advise getting to the bus stop early and standing right by the bus (it will be at the stop at least 30 mins before it leaves). Be prepared to defend your ground - they do not allow people to stand on the bus.....

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

This exceptional museum blows away the exhibit at the Terra Cotta Warriers. The museum is the site of the archeological find of the Tomb of the Han emperor - the viewing is arranged so that you can get very close to the soldiers (you can even see that they are anatomically correct!) And the animals are amazing - the icing on the cake is the film at the end - I will not spoil it but don't miss it!

“An excellent site”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Beyond where the new Xian township is coming up is this interesting historical site. It is a burial site for a Han emperor Liu Qi and his empress. It is small compared to the Terracotta Warriors place, but the method of display is very different. They have made artificial pits next to the burial pits for visitors to see the displays at eye level. Apparently, the naked bodies (as you see them now) were once clothed and had wooden arms but they decayed and fell off. You can fit it in if you are in Xian for 2 days.
