Luckily for me there's currently an exhibition at the Museum of History in Hong Kong and I took advantage of it. It has a wonderfully elaborate title: The Majesty of All Under Heaven - The Eternal Realm of China's First Emperor.

Then there was a massive screen, the size and shape of a skateboard halfpipe, which showed a five minute video of the time when the warriors were built. Obviously a lot of thought, dedication and money has gone into making this exhibition interactive, accessible to all ages and interesting. I thought it was well worth a visit!
