Qin Shi Huang’s Terracotta Warriors at the World Museum

On now and continuing until 28 October 2018, the World Museum is staging an exciting exhibition of the First Emperor of China’s army of life-sized Terracotta Warriors.

The Warriors were set to guard the Emperor’s tomb as part of his pursuit of immortality. This unmissable exhibition, telling the story of the formative years of the Chinese nation, will showcase not only some of the Terracotta Warriors – one of the world’s greatest archaeological discoveries – but 180 artefacts, half or which have never been on show in the UK before.

The World Museum is open daily from 10am, with last entry at 4pm. Although entry to the museum is free, entry to the Terracotta Warriors exhibition costs are £14 for adults (£13 for over 60s). Advance booking is strongly advised as the museum will be operating timed visits for this particular exhibition. Bookings can be made on-line by visiting the museum’s website.


There has been some confusion regarding the venue for the Terracotta Warriors. This exhibition is being staged in the World Museum, which is situated in William Brown Street, Liverpool, L3 8EN, quite some distance (approximately a 15-minute walk) from the Museum of Liverpool (New Museum), near the Waterfront.
