Biggest archeological discovery in the 20th century. It’s hard to wrap your mind around what you’re seeing in pit one. Thousands of life sized soldiers put there to protect their emperor in the afterlife.

This is a must-see if you visit Xi'an! Of course the city has much more to offer than the Qin museum but make sure you plan to visit here if you come. An archeological marvel! Aside from the Warriors do not miss the 2000 year old chrome plated sword and the bronze chariots.

Tjis place is huge. Rows and rows of lifesize animals and men....in mostly military outfit. At close observation, each men and each animal(horses) have their own distinct facial features and no one look alike.

There would be a-plenty said on this topic, but being there, the scope, artistry, and immense capital of the ancient project still completely blows your mind.

It is a unique archeological site, pit 1 is most impressive in terms of sheer number of life sized soldiers displayed. However site could be much improved adding fully coloured soldiers, the way they were discovered before the paint peeled off due to the atmosphere. Also to be honest I don't think a guide is needed (unless you are really interested in historic detail) as even not speaking Chinese we could easily find our way around the site and see everything we wanted to see. Within 2 kilometers from this archeological dig is the Qin Mausoleum, it is included in the same ticket price and is part of the same site however there is nothing to see there, a lot of walking to get to the mountain (underneath presumably is the Qin Emperor tomb, but you can't see anything, not even a model of what the tomb looks like, just a mountain.
