Uncover the story of China's greatest emperor at this exhibit.

After guarding the tomb of China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, for more than two millennia, the famed terracotta warriors have been taking a "divide and conquer" approach to the world, traveling in groups to museums across the globe.

On Sunday, four of the iconic life-size soldiers marched into Bangkok National Museum in the Old Town, where they'll remain on display through Dec 15.

They're joined by an exhibition that gathers over 100 cultural relics from the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC), the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 CE) and the Silk Road era. The exhibits guide visitors through how Chinese craftsmanship developed and evolved, as well as the extraordinary feats of the first emperor, who not only united China's seven kingdoms but unified the various state walls into the Great Wall of China before being buried in a city-sized mausoleum guarded by the Terracotta Army.

Entry to the exhibit, titled "Qin Shi Huang: The First Emperor of China and the Terracotta Warriors," is B30 for Thai citizens and B200 for foreigners. 

 Bangkok National Museum, Na Phra That Alley, 02-224-1333.
