A very nice museum. It is not large, and probably a few hours is good to spend in the museum and on the grounds. The small wild goose pagoda was interesting. Beautiful gardens.

This is a nice museum and has lots of Xian artifacts. It is nicely laid out and there is a floor model of the city and the wall. We came here instead of the Shaanxi Museum since it is not as crowded.

Hi sorry we were on a guided tour but our tour guide let’s us explore by ourselves but was always around for any questions. There did not appear to be any people in the reception area waiting to guide people through.
