Terracotta Warriors Museum
High East Street
Dorset, DT1 1JU
If you have no hope of ever visiting China to see the fabled Terracotta Warriors at Xian then the next best thing is to visit the Terracotta Warriors Museum in Dorchester, Dorset.
In ancient times over 8,000 terracotta clay, life-sized warriors were created by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang di, to protect his tomb.
The exhibition at the museum features a small but spectacular group of these warriors, which have been specially replicated by skilled museum craftsmen and World Heritage conservation technicians in China.
This inspiring display brings together all the wonder of the discovery of these amazing treasures of ancient China. Also featured in the Museum are fabulous costumed recreations of the First Emperor of China himself and his uniformed officers.
