Terracotta Army Facts

Overseas Exhibitions of Terracotta Army

December 20, 2018 – April 2019 at the Te Papa Museum, New Zealand

Altogether 160 statues of Terracotta Army will be on exhibit at the Te Papa Museum in Wellington, New Zealand. Three types of Terracotta Warriors exhibits are expected to see, including terracotta warriors, terracotta horses, and bronze chariots. Previously, mini-sized Terracotta Army has been displayed in Wellington, while this time visitors can enjoy life-sized genuine statues there. Meanwhile, the museum is planning to hold a China contemporary art exhibition to integrate the Terracotta Army exhibition with the celebration of Chinese New Year.
 

February 9, 2018 – October 28, 2018 in the World Museum, UK

From February 9th to October 28th of 2018, the World Museum in Liverpool held a Terracotta Army exhibition. This is the third time that British people have an opportunity to appreciate the exquisite terracotta warriors in their home country after the first two exhibitions were held in 1985 and 2007 respectively. Almost one hundred valuable cultural relics including Qin pottery warriors and horses as well as bronze wares, gold and silver works, and jadeware of the Eastern Zhou Dynasty (770 BC-256 BC) and Han Dynasty (202 BC-220) are displayed in this exhibition. Among the cultural relics, more than half of them are exhibited in England for the first time.
