This interactive exhibit explores the science behind the figures, uncovering how and why they were made. And gives visitors a glimpse of mysteries yet to be solved.

Engaging interactives help visitors understand the challenges facing today’s archaeologists and conservators as they piece together the remarkable history of Qin’s Empire.
