China's Terracotta Soldiers Come to New York

 

New York City is home to some spectacular museums, but we think history buffs will want to visit Discovery Times Square this spring. Terracotta Warriors: Defenders of China's First Emperor, a new immersive exhibition of one of the most significant archaeological discoveries in modern time, is set to make its Northeast U.S. debut at the exhibit hall on April 27. The exhibition will feature artifacts dating back to 221 BCE, including the world premiere of a set of gates from an ancient Han burial chamber, the U.S. debut of more than 20 artifacts, and an up-close look at 10 of the authentic, life-sized clay soldiers and their armor.

Standing more than six feet tall and weighing 600 pounds each, the terracotta soldiers were created more than 2,000 years ago to protect China's First Emperor, Qin Shihuangdi, in his afterlife. Each warrior is unique and bears the face of one of the Emperor’s soldiers.

Tickets will be available to the general public starting at midnight on Saturday, April 21. For more information and tickets, visit www.DiscoveryTS.com. Discovery Times Square is located at 226 West 44th Street.
