In the afternoon of September 19th, Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum called a press conference to announce new ticket purchasing policy which will be applied from October 1st, 2017.
In former years, in each public holiday Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum would become sea of people. Especially during Chinese National Day Holiday, the tourists’ feedback on Terracotta Warriors tour were far less pleasing. Some a few tourists even gave up their visit here because the terrible traffic jam on the way to the museum. To better the situation, Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum carried out the new policy to control visitor numbers.
From October 1st, 2017, both domestic and international tourists must offer their real name and passport number when buying the entrance ticket. When the daily visitor numbers reach top limit, the museum will stop ticket issuing on that day. And for tourists who fail to buy the entrance ticket, they could visit Qinshihuang Mausoleum Park, K9901 & K0006 accompanying pits.
