One of the largest institutions of its kind in the country, Shaanxi History Museum offers an illuminating glimpse into the past through collections of fossils, bronze artifacts, and ancient artwork gathered from around the region. Explore the museum's exhibit halls, many of which feature architecture reminiscent of Tang Dynasty buildings, to browse more than 350,000 items ranging from golden statues to famed terracotta warriors. You'll find that many of the museum's displays feature information and descriptions in English, which make sightseeing even more pleasant and informative. Keep in mind that the museum only offers a limited number of tickets each day, split between the morning and afternoon sessions.

  • 陕西自然人文旅游资源丰富,是中华文明的发祥地,陕西历史博物院是中国最值得参观的博物馆。 这里交通方面,买票免费,但建议联系旅行社,买文物特展和壁画特展票,几个展厅展示了陕西西安悠久的历史,从原始社会到秦汉、盛唐、再到中国经济中心的转移,每件文物都有千年的历史沉淀。 
  • Primarily struck it, as far as the Chinese are interested in its history. Yes, it was a holiday and a day off, Yes, it's informative Museum, but then, with the interest and enthusiasm the Chinese are viewed and photographed every little thing causes great admiration. Its interesting museum exhibits, but people wowed us anymore.

  • Subway line 2, "small Jiuzhaigou" station 10 min walk. Plaza in front of the Museum, facing the entrance there ticket in the right hand and the left hand is left free tickets in Exchange for Center and right hand's paid ticket you can see special exhibitions (30 yuan) was a box office. Paid ticket also doubles as a museum admission ticket. Admission has been deposited in the left-luggage office but of course security checks at the entrance, I don't have a small tripod was put in the bag and asked the entrance in one corner of the square is from. During each era in three exhibition rooms divided and has paid room on the other. In the basement food court. You can rent audio guides paid, charge 30 yuan, deposits 100 Yuan (will be refunded at the end) was. Isn't that just like a Museum of Chinese ancient exhibits rich in time for rest, took about 4 hours to tour. In the Middle so I think either art supplies more than buildings to be interested, too rich in exhibits, looking kinda feeling bored I think that people who like history and treasures have a great Museum.

  • Awesome museum. First it is free, though there would always be 30-meter line-up queue to get the free ticket. While you could buy a ticket for an extra exhibition entrance with 20yuan. It is real bargain to avoid the queuing. The collection is quite stunning . It took me almost 3 hours to visit around the museum. quite rewarding! One more thing, must rent an electronic guide, it would explain the exhibits in details.
  • Quality museum but the management is terrible. Expect to wait 2hours+ outside standing in line waiting for a ticket.
  • Must see. Spend 6 hours inside
  • 馆藏多,人也多
  • Fun place, friendly and knowledgable staff.
