We recently attended the Terracotta Warriors exhibit at the Pacific Science Center at the Seattle Center. One of only two cities the exhibit will visit, Philidelphia is the other, Seattle has been treated to an amazing piece of history.

You are able to get an overall view of the excavation via photos and video. Then you are able to get up close to several examples of Warriors. There are excellent descriptions of the creative process and a thorough history of their purpose and the time they were created.

Well worth a visit to understand how mass production was invented over 2000 years before Henry Ford.

I know they are lots of things to do in Seattle if you are a visitor like me but this is worth giving up something else to see. It was one of the best exhibits I have seen lately. They explained the history of the first emperor, how the warriors were made, how they were painted and how they were laid how near his burial mound. The interactive features were so well integrated into the display that they enhanced the experience rather than being a distraction. I highly recommend the audio guide as well which led me through all the displays. A super look into the history of China!! Don't miss it!!

It's a fun science museum. I used the Seattle Citypass which includes general admission and an IMAX documentary. There are a lot of educational exhibits that are great for kids and adults. If you're in the area I would recommend you check it out.

The Pacific Science Center is always bringing in new and exciting exhibitions. Currently they are showing Terra Cotta Warriors and the companion film Mysteries of China; which provides interesting background info that makes the "Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor" come alive.

The Pacific Science Center has done a spectacular job bringing a very special exhibit to the Seattle. What a remarkable sense of history and the way the overall exhibit is laid out makes it immersive. I don't want to give too much away because it has to be seen. But they clearly put special effort in considering the flow and experience. This was not like just a bunch of museum pieces lined up for viewing. The explanations of the imperial court in China at the time and the excavations made it seem alive and relevant. And when you "enter" the tomb itself, it just feels so real. This is a must see and makes interesting and important culture accessible. Add this to all the other cools things at the Pacific Science Center (IMAX, child friendly interactive science exhibits) and this is really a Seattle treasure.
