The Terracotta Warriors, tasked to guard China’s First Emperor, Qin Shihuangdi, tomb for eternity, stand as archers, infantrymen, and armored officers to hold watch over a striking underground model of China’s first empire. Explore the Warriors and the life of the ruler who vanquished his rivals, unified China’s many warring states, constructed the first Great Wall, built roads throughout his vast territory, and standardized China’s script, currency, weights, and measures. Marvel over his obsession with immortality and his desire to reign over the universe ALL in support of this great cause. For tickets and more info for this event, click here.
