Easy to navigate around. The viewing gallery was very crowded by this time. if there are long queues when you visit, it might be worth a miss. You can watch the statues from very great distance in strange crowd

Of course we went to see the Terracota warriors and really enjoyed the visit. Great museum and display in a huge area. You should plan for at least a 4 hour visit round trip. Its not to far away, I guess it depends on traffic

Arrive earlier than 10 am or just after midday when crowds start to leave. Avoid public holidays. No subway going to this area but you can take direct bus from Xian railway station.
