Emperor Qin's Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses Museum

The well-known Terra-cotta Museum is located east of Emperor Qin's Mausoleum in China, which covers a total area of 20 hectares.
It was on March 29,1974. when local farmers of XiYang Village, Ling Tong Country, were drilling a series of wells in search of water, pottery fragments and ancient bronze weapons were discovered accidentally. Those were Emperor Qin and his Terra-cotta Army 2,200 years ago. The head of the village reported the news to the local government at once. The news aroused much attention from both local government and National Cultural Relics Bureau. With government approval, an archaeological team from Shanxi Province arrived at the site on July 17,1974 and began their explorations and Qin Shihuang's Terra-cotta Museum was opened to the public.
In the last 20 years, the Terra-cotta Museum has developed and become the largest on-site museum in China. Emperor Qin's Terra-cotta Museum is not only a treasure house where the tourists can learn history, culture and human civilization, but also a main scenic spot of Xi An city.
Today "the eighth Wonder of the world" has almost become synonym of the Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses In 1987, the Emperor Qin's Mausoleum was put on the list of the UNESCO as a world-class cultural heritage site. Now the Museum is well-known widely as a huge modern on-site museum and it is going to be one of the best in the world.
