If you are having a Xian package tour,our Xian travel guide will introduce you to see the Xianyang Museum in Xian,which is one of the Xian tourist attractions,thus giving you a complete sightseeing in Xian.
The Xianyang Museum is one of the famous museums in China. It mainly has collections of the Qin (221 BC to 206 BC) and Han Dynasty (206 BC to 9 AD) eras. Xianyang was the capital city of the Qin Empire. The Qin Dynasty controlled the first large empire in the land, and the boundaries established during the Qin Empire were maintained and enlarged upon by the Western Han Empire. The exhibits contain some of the best artifacts that have been discovered of that time in the various large imperial tombs and ruins around Xianyang. The museum covers about 1,100 square meters or about a quarter of an acre. The museum is in the modern city of Xianyang. The area is a few kilometers west of Xi'an, and it was the capital city of the Qin Empire. The Han Dynasty used it as a mausoleum area to bury people. The ticket price is inexpensive, but the nine halls in the museum house real treasures.

Information about the Xianyang Museum

The renovated building was once a Confucian temple area of the Ming Dynasty era (1368-1644), and it retains some of the look of a Confucian temple. The best artifacts in the collection are the bronze vessels and pieces of art and the Western Han Terracotta Army. Some of the Terracotta Army pieces retain much of the original color, so visitors can see how people looked 2,000 years ago. There are 9 halls and a newly opened "Stele Corridor".

The 9 halls house a collection of Han and Qin Empire artifacts and teach about the history of the two empires. The first three halls contain Qin Empire relics including jade objects, potteries, and written records. The fourth hall contains modern painting and calligraphy. The Han Empire Terracotta army is in the fifth and sixth halls. The 3,000 terracotta statues were excavated in Xianyang in 1965. They give an idea of how the Han people used to dress.

The seventh, eighth and ninth halls contain the biggest sitting bronze Buddha statue of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) as well as other religious and cultural relics. The stele corridor contains steles with inscriptions.

Other Museums in Xianyang:
