You will learn about the basic facts of matriarchal society far back to 5000-6000 years ago.

After 1-1.5 hours at Banpo Museum, we will head to Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum. Known as “the Eighth Wonder of the World” and one of the most significant archaeological discoveries in the 20th century, the museum shows a surprisingly high level in sculpture. Some western visitors call the three pits of the Terracotta Warriors as “Handsome Men Gathering”. You will notice the terracotta soldiers are different from each other, especially their facial features and braids. You will also see two “BMWs” of the Emperor Qin Shihuang. They were the most luxurious vehicle in the Qin Dynasty.
