This museum is well worth a visit in conjunction with a visit to the Terra Cotta Army. These statues are much smaller, but nonetheless still as fascinating. Very well presented museum with interesting artifacts and exhibits. The floors are see through so you are actually walking over part of the pits, which are are very extensive.

Han YangLing excavation site is not as popular as the Qin Terracotta warriors site but is certainly worth a visit. Unlike the more popular one in Xian, this site has not only warriors but "people" from all walks of life including women. Hire a good guide who can reveal the suspense at the right time on why the "people" are... More

Compared to the famous terracotta warriors, Han Yang Ling may not be known to the world. However, I think this museum is great and you must not miss. There are more than 200 tombs in this area, in which a few pits were converted to museums. Before entering the museum, visitors must wear a shoe cover as visitors are to... More

This is the burial place of Emperor Jing, the fourth emperor of the Western Han Dynasty, who chose to be buried with terracotta warriors that are so small that from the floor of the see-through walkway, they look spookily like babies, thousands of them. There is a mock-up version of what the horses and chariots would have looked like before... More

About 20 km from Xian, the Han Yang Ling Museum is in the northern suburbs of Xian City, A smaller version of the Terracotta Warriors with miniature characters buried which you can view through the glass floor over the burial pits. Not as grand or as impressive as the Terracotta Warriors but worth a visit.

I was very surprised how interesting this attraction was. The number and variety of small Warriors an animals is fascinating. We had access to the Laboratory where restoration work is carried out and this added to the attraction.
