This place has three sites of different places they have found the 8000 warriors and horses also. We went on the weekend and we were able to meet the farmer who found the statues in his field when we was digging in the ground. He is a lovely man and happy to have a photo with you and autograph his picture book. The warriors are many different designs and facial features which make it all the more interesting. A definite place to not miss when in China!

We visited as families of with 5 children 11and under. For the kids it wasn't intetesting at all. things to consider.

Foreign kids over 1.2M in height pay 75RMB each, adults150RMB, it's almost a kilometer walk from the entrance gate to the warrior pits.

Pit 1 is the largest and most interesting, pit 3 has some pieces and pit 2 is mostly empty as the pieces in this pit are being exhibited around the world.

It's so busy, people are pushing for the best view. Go early early morning as it is busy, by lunchtime the place was packed.

Keep young children close and agree a meeting point, we spent as much time keeping an eye on the kids as looking at the exhibition.

There is a payable (5rmb) shuttle from the entrance, if you have a stroller it must fold up small.

Book a guide and driver for the day and visit the Warriors so you can do other things for the rest of the day.

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.
