It is time to go out and enjoy yourself outdoors, or on rainy days, go to Shaanxi History Museum: It's a national museum dedicated to the history of Xi'an, the capital city of many old dynasties and kingdoms. The exhibits range from exhibits from the Bronze Age, to Terracotta Army pieces of the Qin Empire, to the Tang Dynasty, and to modern times. It is considered one of the best museums in the country.
You'll need more than two hours to get a good look at the large array of artifacts and to take in information. It is a good place to learn about China. Entrance is free, so you might find it crowded. It is next to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda.
See the Small Wild Goose Pagoda: This famous attraction actually dates from the Tang Dynasty, 709 AD. It is a favorite attraction of foreign tourists partly because you can climb up the inner stairway to look around. The pagoda is in a garden setting with a rose garden and a pond with geese.
The ancient pagoda building is now on the grounds of the Xi’an Museum. Entrance to the museum building is free, and it exhibits tens of thousands of precious artifacts that show the splendid history and culture of Xi’an.
