Located northwest to the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, Shaanxi History Museum boasts for the thousands of splendid cultural relics it houses. As a Tang Dynasty style complex, the museum covers an area of almost 60,000 sq meters. Among all the culture relics shown in the museum, over 400 murals from the tombs of nobles of Tang Dynasty are most striking. Covering an area of more than 1,000 sq meters (0.25 acres), the murals depict life, constructions, hunting, religions and the communication with other countries during the Tang Dynasty. Thus, you can have a better understanding about the superb dynasty, when there were one million residents in the capital Chang’an (now Xian) alone. Besides, exquisite bronze mirrors of Han and Tang dynasties, terra cotta figures, building materials and currencies of all the dynasties are also well preserved in the museum. Shaanxi History Museum is indeed a best place for you to appreciate the centuries-old history of China.
