SHAANXI HISTORY MUSEUM.
The first place I visited in China was the SHAANXI HISTORY MUSEUM, located in the ancient city Xi’an. Inside the museum there were murals, paintings, pottery, coins, as well as bronze, gold, and silver objects. The Shaanxi history museum was constructed in 1983 and was opened to the public in June 20 1991, it’s appearance recalls the architectural style of the Tang Dynasty.
The entrance tickets were free. Overall I think that it was an interesting museum to visit. If you’re ever in Xi’an make sure to go see the SHAANXI HISTORY MUSEUM.
The Terracotta warriors were a form of funerary art buried with the emperor in 210–209 BCE and whose purpose was to protect the emperor in his afterlife. The Terracotta Army was discovered on 29 March 1974 to the east of Xi’an by farmers digging a water well. The Terracotta Army held more than 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses. This discovery prompted Chinese archaeologists to investigate, revealing the largest pottery figurine group ever found in China.
