This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Take a journey inside one of the most significant archaeological discoveries in history.

Silent, steadfast and secret, more than 8,000 terracotta figures stood guard over the tomb of China’s first emperor for over 2,000 years before being discovered in 1974. Now, these warriors come to museum in an exhibit that explores the story, culture, craft and science of the statues. Unprecedented in its focus on the science and technology used to build, bury and excavate the Terracotta Army, this exhibit engages visitors through 10 terracotta figures, more than 170 artifacts, plus multimedia and interactive elements.


$25, adults; $15-$20, kids.
