The reconstructed Terracotta Warriors are magnificent, produced in China with some shown in smaller sizes. Displays are interesting and plenty to read. I thought it well worth both the entrance fee and the walk from the otherside of the town to get there - recommended...More

We visited as a family visiting all of the museums in Dorchester. This exhibition is small but very informative. My eldest son who is 8 really found it interesting. One gripe is that no photo’s are permitted to be taken......why not???

This was an expensive mistake on a rainy day. The museum is essentially one room containing duplicated information boards. The dvd presented in an ad hoc curtained off area was so bad it was funny. There are far better things to do in Dorchester than...More

Combined with the teddy bear museum upstairs, the joint entry ticket was affordable and reasonable, in our opinion. Lifelike figures, reconstructions of the real ones, brought to life the whole story of the terracotta army in a small but well-curated museum.

Purchased as part of group ticket which is valid for one visit to each over a week. Individually the price for each museum is quite expensive but more reasonable when purchased as a package although still not cheap. I think if I was staying in...More
