China's Terracotta Warriors at the Asian Art Museum

By February 10, 2013

Follow me on:

One of China's most famous archaeological treasures is coming to San Francisco on Febraury 22nd, just in time for Chinese New Year, the terracotta warrior's from the tomb of the first emperor.

These life sized warriors were built in 210 BC but not discovered until 1974 because they were actually part of a huge underground complex that housed over 7,000 of these figures.

You can check out a collection of them yourself through May 27 2013 at the Asian Art Museum, located just blocks from Union Square in San Francisco' Civic Center area.

An opening party on February 21st features food, cocktails, a live DJ set and a sneak peak at the warriors, who are making their debut appearance on the west coast of the United States.
