  • Free entry. Nice collection of Chinese arts and history.
  • This museum offers you an in-depth historical view of the city. Recommended to visit before you tour around Xi'an. It's not a giant museum and it won't take more than 2 hours. Museum closed on Tuesdays.
  • Hey guys. A wonderful place to experience the atmosphere of Chinese Tang dynasty but...this museum is closed every Tuesday. Sad but thats the fact. I came here twice but CLOSED
  • Wonderful museum on Xian. The quality of the museum is comparable to Beijing's National museum. Lots of English signage and descriptions throughout. Best of all: free entrance!
  • A small museum with not much a collection. However, u could still find some interesting stuffs and historical heritages if u take time to explore. It would be good if u know the ancient histories to associate the stories with the exhibits here
