Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality offers you a rare opportunity to have an intimate and immersive encounter with some of the remarkable ancient terracotta warriors. For more than 2,000 years, they secretly guarded the tomb of Qin Shihuang, China’s First Emperor.

Discovered by chance in 1974, the underground army is one of the greatest ever archaeological finds – and regarded by some as an eighth wonder of the world.

This landmark exhibition features eight warriors standing 180 centimetres tall, and two full-size horses from the famous terracotta army – as well as two half-size replica bronze horse-drawn chariots.

Also on display are more than 160 exquisite works of ancient Chinese art made from gold, jade, and bronze. The works date from the Western Zhou to the Han dynasties (1046 BCE – 220 CE), and were found in imperial tombs in and around China’s ancient capital, Xi’an.  

Experience the wonder of these ancient artefacts and gain a deep understanding of the First Emperor’s vision for his afterlife and his unification of China, which shaped the nation we know today.


秦始皇兵马俑:永恒的守卫是一次难得一见的展览,让您能近距离欣赏举世瞩目的古代兵马俑。在2000多年的时间里,它们一直在地下默默地守卫着中国第一位皇帝——秦始皇的陵墓。

秦始皇兵马俑偶然发现于1974年,是世界上最壮观的考古发现之一,被誉为“世界第八大奇迹”。

这次里程碑式的展览包括八个高180厘米的兵俑,两个真马一般大小的马俑以及两个按1/2的比例仿制而成的铜马车。

展品还包括其它160多件精致的中国古代黄金、玉石和青铜工艺品。这些展品出土于中国古都西安及其周边地区的皇家陵寝,年代跨越西周至汉代(公元前1046年-公元220年)。

让我们一起感受中国古代工艺品的魅力,细细体会秦始皇对死后世界的设想,了解他统一中国的伟业。正是他的统一造就了今天的中国。
