I visited this as part of a group today after visiting the Terracotta Warriors. What a disappointment. It's like a school art project depicting how the tomb might have looked. Don't waste your time and yuan on this one. The car park was devoid of tourist buses.....and it was only after experiencing this that I worked out why.

Coinsidently we visited that place, because our driver made a mistake. We wanted to see the tomb of Qin Er Shi not the fake replica of the first Qin emperor... So we thought ok, 65RMB for that tomb is good, we paid and boom, surprise: we found that. First you go in the 2nd floor, they have around 16 scenes... More

Creepy reconstruction of what tomb probably looks like inside. Just a weird, creepy dollhouse. Skip it and go straight to the Warriors - nothing to see here.

This is just a model of the real tomb of the Emperor Qi. No signs in English and too many steps to go up and down can put the international tourists off. It does not look very authentic either. I went as part of my organised day trip, which was interesting and enjoyable overall.

Only a model of what to expect to see in the real tomb of Yingzhen (Emperor Qi), and a bit of history how the tomb was build. Unfortunately no english guide but english pamphlet available. Not a must see site but was part of package and still interesting. Imagine the real tomb is 30 times larger is just extraordinary.

Just a fake chamber to cheat those who don't know it's a fake....It's not a real historical relic, just a imagination of the chamber of Qin Shi Huang ! Do not go there please ! 我只能說這是個宰人的地方,位於兵馬俑附近,還真讓人以為真的挖到秦皇帝功了,被騙進去花了20,搞半天只是個想像的,要吹冷氣的話就盡量進去吧,那還挺涼的。

stopped here as part of out tour. It's a replica of what Emperor Qins tomb is thought to look at. No English signs.. lucky wife is Chinese. Gives history of tomb being built . I enjoyed it overall. The inner tomb was neat. The rivers of mercury and stars on the ceiling is cool. Not a must see-but if you... More

Everything on this exhibition is a copy of what is supposed to be the interior of Emperor Qin tomb. You better off watching National Geographic channel.
