  • Awesome peace of art. Great creativity. Its a special treat for eyes. I like all the the designs put on display. Have many varities of restored sculptures from old culture. In first sight can't believe its restored. Very big place. Need at least 2 -3 hours to cover everything. Nice and helpful staff. Well maintained place. Nice infrastructure and management. Great place to learn about chinese culture and history. People should support such a great creativity. Thanks for the services.
  • this place might not be well known spot compare to the other popular Xi-an tourist attraction promoting area. it's located quite a bit far away from ancient city wall, however this place has concealed a lot of prehistorical stories that you couldn't be imagined. if you have enough spare time for Xi-an traveling trip, this place is also the worth visiting one.
  • I wouldn't go as far as saying "must see" but it isn't every day you see 6000 year old skeletons. Some of the museum buildings look run down and derelict but the main excavation site building is pretty incredible and the gallery has some interesting exhibits. I'd say go there if you have time!
  • A very historial place on human civilization 6000yrs history;recreated in details.worth a visit
  • Not worth if you are on day trip. It is not well maintained although some artifacts are thousands of years old
