In Xi’an, capital city of Shaanxi province in Northwest China, lies the mausoleum of China’s first feudal emperor -- Qinshihuang (r. 221-210BC). The burial pits of terracotta warriors and their horses on the east side of this mausoleum are the world's largest underground military museum. They are known as "the eighth wonder of the world", and were listed as a UNESCO World Heritage in 1987.
The online tour of the exhibition at the Emperor Qinshihuang’s Mausoleum Site Museum is in five parts, namely, the outdoor scene of the museum, burial pits No 1, No 2 and No 3, bronze chariots and horses, Qin (221-207 BC) and Han (206 BC-AD 220) pottery figurines and museum history display.
