Shaanxi History Museum
As one of the most important cradles for the origin of Chinese nation and the Huaxia civilization, Shaanxi Province possesses a wide range of ideological hallmarks and natural landmarks of the Chinese civilization, China’s history of revolution, and Chinese geography, including the Mausoleum of the Huangdi Emperor, the Terracotta Army, the Yan’an Pagoda, the Qinling Mountains, the Huashan Mountains, and so forth. Fourteen historical dynasties including the Zhou, Qin, Han and Tang dynasties founded their capitals and flourished here. The rich cultural heritage and profound cultural achievements stimulated the formation of distinctive historical and cultural ethos in Shaanxi. Regarded as ‘the pearl of the ancient city and treasury of the Huaxia civilization’, the Shaanxi History Museum is the art pavilion to curate and exhibit Shaanxi’s historical culture and ancient Chinese civilization.

Terracotta Army, also namely Terracotta Warriors and Horses, is known as the Eighth Wonder of the World. It is a super large collection of life-size terra cotta sculptures in battle formations, reproducing the mega imperial guard troops of Emperor Qin Shi Huang (259 - 210BC), the first emperor of the first unified dynasty of Imperial China. The great archeological excavation of Qin (221BC-206BC) Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses unfolded a strong army of altogether 7,000 life-size pottery soldiers, horses, chariots and weapons arranged in battle formations symbolically, guarding the tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huang. Being the most significant archeological excavations of the 20th century and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Terracotta Army is no doubt a must-see for every visitor to Xi'an.
