  • The Xi'An Museum consists of the museum, a huge garden, the small goose pagoda and the Jian Fu Temple. This museum is free (unless you want to go up to the Small Goose Pagoda, which costs 30 yuan each...  more »
  • We spent a whole morning examining all the various items in this museum which were of unique note. I was sorry there was not much evidence of porcelain. 
  • A small collection considering the size of the museum. Despite this, because of the much smaller crowd I felt like I could actually enjoy the museum.

  • 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
