I did enjoy going to see this. It is a fascinating part of Chinese history. It is amazing to think that the Chinese would make the terra-cotta soldiers to protect the dead. It is definitely a mind blowing museum. Worth the visit. I think our tour group spent about 2 hours there. I think I could've cut the time down... More

Better than I expected. The terra cotta warriors are amazing. I wish all of the work had been completed and we had gotten to see more finished warriors, but it still is a great experience. By far the highlight of our visit to Xi'an.

No, it is not just like all the photos. It is absolutely stunning to actually see them. Yes, it was crowded, but the area is quite large and can accommodate a lot of people! So worth seeing!!

Must see sight - I was afraid I would be disappointed as had heard awful crowds etc but it was fine - very busy but not dreadful. Tour groups can be a bit annoying but when they move you can get to the front. Stunning to see TCWs in situ and the sheer scale is mind bending as is the... More

As part of our stay in Xian we had at the top of our list to visit the Terra-cotta museum. We were amazed at the sheer scale and detail of the warriors and horses and the tremendous efforts of the museum to restore them. Some tips: 1. Make sure you have a tour guide - we used Bryanbai at xianhistorytourguide... More

An awesome place. need plenty of time to visit with comfortable walking shoes as it is a huge place with big crowds. Has to be seen in person to really appreciate this magnificent place.

WOW, WOW, WOW!!!! says it all!!!! Highly recommend for anyone. Easy access for everyone. Amazing views of unearthed warriors. AND it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And it's such recently unearthed. The curators have done an excellent job of preparing an experience that lets you get as close to the warriors as is humanly possible. The restoration of the horsedrawn... More

Everything has been said by others. I would only add: Be careful if you pick up a guide, even if they are certified. Remember that they earn their money by how many people they can guide per day. This means they are likely to rush you through things or avoid certain parts. For example, my Chinese speaking friends got a... More

First, we hired a guide out front. At first, I thought is was a scam, but after having hired one, I cannot imagine how we would have enjoyed our experience or navigated the various things without a guide. Money well spent. I was not expecting much when we went, but I knew it was a big tourist attraction. I learned... More
