Terracotta Warriors @ ACM

Dad was keened to view the Terracotta Warriors back from the Qing Dynasty so we had organized another family trip to Asian Civilization Museum after our last visit for Kangxi Emperor exhibition. Terracotta Warriors exhibit ain't so much for the kiddos but they were delighted as long as they got to go out. Dad could concentrate on viewing the exhibit while we entertained the kiddos with the interactive IPhone app on Terracotta Warriors (The world’s first iPhone app for a museum that combines Augmented Reality, mini-games and interactive features to enjoy this exciting gallery trail). At the end of the trip, dad even commented he didn't have to travel all the way to China, Xi'an Shaanxi to just see Terracotta Warriors.

Facts on the Terracotta Warriors: 
The terracotta army buried near the tomb of the First Emperor of China, Shi Huangdi (259 - 210 BCE), is perhaps the most important archaeological discovery of our time. Unearthed in 1974 outside Xi’an, the thousands of pottery soldiers and horses are striking works of art that tell us a great deal about early China. For the first time in Singapore, see the genuine terracotta warriors from the First Emperor’s tomb. Look out for 100 artefacts from Shaanxi, China, including beautiful jade, bronze and gold objects. The Han dynasty inherited the legacy of unified China, and charming terracotta figures from this later period show how the First Emperor’s tomb influenced later burials.


  1. Erm.... for a family of 5 adults, 1 student and 3 kiddos, we only paid $7.50 with Passion Card discount. Free admission for Senior Citizen, Children and Students. For an affordable price to expose the kids to something different, I'll think it's worth the try.

    I'm not into museum thingy but the iPhone apps for use inside the ACM: Terracotta Warriors is quite interesting.
