Since our landmark exhibition China's First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors
opened in February, we've welcomed over 300,000 visitors from across the country and around the world. For many, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the incredible life-size figures from the burial site of China's First Emperor.
Now due to popular demand, visitors will be able to experience the exhibition after hours at late night openings on Fridays and Saturdays throughout August, with the last entry at 8pm.
Showcasing objects from one of the world's greatest archaeological discoveries, the exhibition traces the rise to power of China's First Emperor, Qin Shi Huang. It explores his quest for immortality and reveals the social, political and cultural transformations that, along with his terracotta army, remain enduring symbols of the First Emperor's legacy. The story of the Han Dynasty's golden age is also told through exquisite objects from royal burial sites.
Exhibition tickets can be booked online
and are priced from £14.50 for adults, £13 for concessions and £5.50 for children aged between 6 and 17 years. Entry to the exhibition is free to children aged 5 years and under, and members
