It is all you expect and more. Worth going to China just to see it. Our guide took is through in reverse so we were able to see a lot without crowds. This is art, history, archaeology. We want to go back.

Absolutely wonderful to see the warriors, although the main site is very busy. There is a feeling of already having been there as seen so much on TV!The adjoining displaysare very wellpresented and not quite so busy as the main hall.

This has got to be one of the most awesome in-situ archaeological sites and I've been to many. It's one thing to see a few warriors standing in a museum. To see thousands standing in-situ is an amazing sight.

Visiting during the off-season had the benefit of few people and so enabled us to see everything easily. I am eager to observe how the archaeologists progress with the area close to the Emporer's tomb...I will... More

Come here! See everything! Buy the mini sets from the guys outside and bargain with them! Plan to spend a couple of hours and visit all the warrior areas and the museum.
