Face-to-Face with the Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an

Bronze Chariots



The Exhibition Hall of the Qinling Bronze Carriages opened on October 1, 1983. The two bronze carriages displayed in the hall were discovered 20 meters from the west side of the Tomb of Qin Shi Huang in December 1980, and were elaborately restored before exhibition.
