Terracotta Warriors at Discovery Times Square


The Discovery Times Square is a fun place to see exhibits. I have visited to see Titanic, King Tut, Harry Potter and now the Terracotta Warriors. The location is right in the heart of Times Square, West 44th Street between 7th and 8th Avenue. I personally love the fact it is right across from Junior's Restaurant.  

6 FEET TALL. 2,000 YEARS OLD. 1 EMPEROR'S LEGACY. 

Direct from China, discover the legend behind the authentic terracotta soldiers with a fascinating journey back to the days of China’s first emperor Qin Shihuangdi — before and after his epic rule. Marvel at the life-size warriors up close and in person, alongside an exclusive collection of over 200 treasures and artifacts from ancient China. 
Now through August 26,2012 
Organized in partnership with: China Institute founded in 1926








This exhibit was quite amazing and the workmanship of these "warriors" was incredible. We had not planned to visit this, but with a bit of time left before our dinner at Junior's, it was an educational adventure. Since this exhibit is closing soon, I wanted to alert you to try to visit before it heads back to China.
