  • In position next to the small Yanta, the documents can be free to visit, the internal collection of cultural relics is very rich, can spend a whole day in the time of the small watch, very worth a look.

  • An excellent museum that collects various unearthed during excavations occurred bringing to light the ancient cities in the region. Beautiful pottery of the Han dynasty. Interesting scale model of ancient Xi'an.

  • Is not the formidable collection and if you don't have a lot of time you can skip, but it is in the city centre next to major attractions (towers and pagodas) and has free admission. We got for just half an hour during our tour in the region ...

  • 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.
  • Free entry. Nice collection of Chinese arts and history.
  • Free museums with lots of awesome stuff.
  • Good education place for young people.
  • 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

Where to stay in Xi'an

As in most Chinese cities, the least expensive places to stay in Xi'an concentrate around the main train station. To stay in a quieter and safer area, look for rooms in or near the city center, where you can choose between mid-range hotels and affordable youth hostels catering to backpackers and other travelers on a budget. Tourists with bargaining experience can usually get deeply discounted rooms through agents working the shuttle bus station at the airport. If you'd rather avoid dealing with touts, book your accommodations ahead.
