Terracotta Warriors Come To U.S. Children’s Museum

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the world’s largest children’s museum and one of the top family attractions in the U.S. according to USA Today, will host two new exhibits about China starting this May.

The first, entitled Take Me There:® China, will open May 10 at the museum and will offer visitors an exploration of both ancient and modern China. Families will be able to “fly” over the Great Wall of China, “land” in Beijing, and embark on a journey through modern-day China. In recreated Chinese buildings and environments, visitors will explore the daily life and celebrations of Chinese families through art, music, food, tea culture, calligraphy, and ancient Chinese medicine. Children can try their hand at using chopsticks, try playing real Chinese instruments and even learn their Zodiac sign. Visitors can also explore the preservation of giant pandas, the species unique to China that is beloved around the world. In a special immersion experience, families will participate in a shadow puppet performance or martial arts training program in the setting of the famed Shaolin Temple. Take Me There:® China is free with admission and is sponsored in part by the China National Tourist Office (CNTO).

The second exhibit, Terra Cotta Warriors: The Emperor’s Painted Army, will bring the world-famous warriors direct from China’s Shaanxi Province to Indianapolis. Running from May-November 2, 2014, the exhibit will offer an up-close experience with these 2,200-year-old mysterious relics. Visitors will learn how the unusually lifelike warriors were made by the first emperor’s artisans, become part of the archaeology team, and learn more about these incredible artifacts’ history. This is a one-of-a-kind exhibit that is not to be missed!
