The BanPo Museum provided an outstanding opportunity to look back 5000 years at a civilization that inhabited the area that now resides under the museum cover. The excavation has been carefully done and the exhibits look fresh and new. There is plenty of english subtitles....More

This was an optional part of a tour to see the Terracotta Army but was definitely worth it. The museum shows ancient dwellings in a very interesting way. A must see if you can fit it into your day.

The city of Xi-an is a city of mad contrasts. Historic center, beautiful walls but right behind them the concrete jungle of ugly residential houses. Banpo Museum - a small oasis between concrete. Excavations of a 6000 year old Neolithic village, reconstructed dwelling, graves ......More
