Terra Cotta Warriors: The Emperor’s Painted Army

An army of thousands, buried for centuries, protecting an emperor’s tomb—come see the Terra Cotta Warriors in their only U.S. appearance in 2014! This exclusive exhibit tells the astounding story of the tomb complex of China’s first emperor, and features real Terra Cotta Warriors among more than 100 artifacts from the burial site in Xi’an, China, considered by many to be the Eighth Wonder of the World. Hands-on interactives let families become part of the research team and explore the scientific research underway that helps us picture the army in its original vibrant colors. This is your chance to see one of the greatest archaeological discoveries. Timed entry exhibit; additional ticket purchase required. Visit childrensmuseum.org/warriors to reserve tickets.
