Visited for the Terracotta Army exhibition but ended up staying all afternoon for the Egypt and other exhibitions. Plenty to do. Ate at the café, standard food, expensive for what you got.

Enjoyed very much the hour spent looking around the exhibits - it was a bit crowded but despite this had a good view of the terracotta soldiers and the other exhibits.

My brother got tickets for us to come and visit the exhibit of the Terracotta Warriors. We travelled down from Scotland to see it especially. We were amazed at this amazing, colourful, informative assault on the senses. As you start there’s a wee film to...More

We went on Friday and there is a kiosk at the museum where you can buy them without booking on the website. We also had trouble booking in advance on the website so decided to risk it instead
