  • As far as museums go in China, this one was particularly well done. Most of the stuff in the museum was translated into English, and there was so much to look at. Giant rooms full of pottery, jewelry and sculpture, some of which are more than 2000 years old. If you aren't really into art, there is an impressive amount of historical information and perspective on the more than 2500 year history of Xi'an. And to top it all off, the museum its is free (at least it was the day I went, as the Small Wild Goose Pagoda was closed for climbing due to renovations). The Small Wild Goose Pagoda is really cool and dripping with history, making it a must-see in Xi'an, and while you're there, you absolutely need to stop in this museum. You won't regret it
  • If you have already visited the Shaanxi Musuem or are planning to visit it during your trip to Xi'an, you could skip this one. It is a small museum accompanying the Small Pagoda and doesn't have a variety and diverse items and relics as those in the Shaanxi Museum.
  • Great atmosphere and livid scenery. A cultural immersion that it in the right mindstate could blow your mind in the vastness of ancient Xian
  • a must visit place , both Museum and the pagoda tower presented a history of Han and Tang dynasty Culture and details of living with amazing structure of the pagoda.
  • A very under rated place in Xi'an for visit, very peaceful courtyard before the museum with a lots to see. The museum don't have much exhibit to see but still good to go.
