This fascinating exhibit includes 8 of the terra cotta warriors that were buried for 2200 years around the emperor's tomb and unearthed in 1974. Approximately 8,000 unique life-sized soldiers were buried as part of the world's largest underground burial site with the intention of protecting the emperor's tomb in the afterlife.
This is the only time this year that you'll be able to see the Terra Cotta Warriors in the U.S. and the first time that it's been available in a family-centered venue. While the real warriors are behind glass, there are some great-opportunity for hands-on fun, including an opportunity to sculpt your own miniature terra cotta warrior.
Also, don't miss the experience of being immersed in Chinese culture in the Take Me There: China exhibit where you can learn all about life in modern day China.
