Visited Xian and the TERRA-COTTA museum with friends ..we picked a good day because it was pouring rain! Perfect for indoors..
The museum was so unique and amazing..
it’s history, the painstaking detail of every warrior with different facial expressions and features, the garments , the chariots...everything was so awesome!
The gift shop has a lot to offer too!
The picture with the background was well worth it too!
Loved it!

As anticipated this did not disappoint. Had been several times to China and this time got down to seeing the Terracotta Warriors. Amazing to seeing a real-sized period army in full battle formation. Exhibition was vey organized. Picked up a guide at the entrance which was probably a good idea.

Everything about this place is impressive. The scale and individual artistry of the soldiers is incredible. The site, like everything n China, is on epic proportions and it is so well organised. Only 150 RMB to get in - just queue up and pay cash is easiest. Looking at the broken and damaged remains still in the pits carries a real sense of soldiers broken and damaged by war. To see them 2000 years, individually painted must have caused such wonder for the few that saw it complete.

If, according to the locals, this just the tip of the archaeological iceberg in the area, who knows what wonders remain buried nearby. Warriors are being painstakingly restored and amazing to see. Be prepared for a lot of elbowing and jostling with the 1000s of flag following tourists which detracts from the spectacle

This is a must see site.
Only a fraction of the Warriors are restored and lined up. There is still an impressive number. Pit one has the largest collection.pits two and three give on an idea of the extent of the site.
The bronze chariots are impressive m but most marred by the crowds.
The whole site was very crowded on a Saturday, but one could maneuver for a view.
The whole area outside the museum is a shopping and restaurant plazza.
