There are also souvenirs like mini warriors if you are interested. Then you will spend about 2.5 hours at the Terracotta Warriors 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.
