  • Awesome peace of art. Great creativity. Its a special treat for eyes. I like all the the designs put on display. Have many varities of restored sculptures from old culture. In first sight can't believe its restored. Very big place. Need at least 2 -3 hours to cover everything. Nice and helpful staff. Well maintained place. Nice infrastructure and management. Great place to learn about chinese culture and history. People should support such a great creativity. Thanks for the services.
  • this place might not be well known spot compare to the other popular Xi-an tourist attraction promoting area. it's located quite a bit far away from ancient city wall, however this place has concealed a lot of prehistorical stories that you couldn't be imagined. if you have enough spare time for Xi-an traveling trip, this place is also the worth visiting one.
