"Terracotta Warriors: Defenders of China's First Emperor"

One of the most significant archaeological finds of all time, the authentic Terracotta Warriors return to NYC in this exhibition, produced in cooperation with the Chinese Institute. The figures were unearthed from the tomb of Emperor Qin, China's first emperor, who unified the country and established a seat of government. Nearly 8,000 warriors crafted by more than 1,000 artisans were buried alongside hundreds of other artifacts, many of which are also on view, to protect the emperor in the afterlife. Note that last entry is 45 minutes prior to closing time. Ages 4 and up.
