A worthty trip. If you interested in history of China you will like this place. Spend 2 hours here. Not many visitors when the time we came. Sure recommend to every traveller. Visited on June 2018.

It must have been the find of a lifetime when construction workers discovered this tomb. What an amazing story and incredible display of artifacts and relics. You only pay RMB12 to get in and it is well worth the trip.
