I have always wished to go to China to see The Great Wall and the Terracotta Army, so this Museum fascinated me. The 45 minute film of Xians brutal reign as First Emperor was gripping, horrific and memorable. I learnt a huge amount and would...More

I'm unsure why people are rating this any more than a 2 star. I don't wish to be rude or a "troll". It is essentially one room, in a one up, one down building. The upstairs being the teddy bear museum which we didn't bother...More

You could, of course, travel several thousand miles to Xi’an and see the 8,000 soldiers that constitute the real Terracotta Army. Or, you could just come here. This is a pretty magnificent alternative, has all the info you need and why look at 8,000 figures...More

The Terracotta museum is in the same building as the Teddy bear museum so we did both. The warrior museum is very interesting with many original artifacts and a film showing the life story of Emperor Chin and what he achieved in where we now...More

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???
