A second chance to explore Qin Shuhuang’s mausoleum complex with Haicheng Wang, the Mary and Cheney Cowles Endowed Associate Professor of Chinese Art at the University of Washington. Delve deeper into the design, preparation, and construction of the mausoleum complex and discover what the First Emperor’s legacy tells us about building techniques, military tactics, weapons, and metallurgy. Learn about the distinctive style of Qin art and examine whether the terracotta soldiers provide evidence for western contact in early China.

Want the full experience? See the world premiere exhibition of Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor, a joint project between Pacific Science Center and The Franklin Institute during its limited five-month run. Tickets available separately at pacificsciencecenter.org/terracotta-warriors.
