The exhibition will run from February to October 2018 at the World Museum in the city centre giving a glimpse into the story of Qin Shi Huang, who ruled from 221 to 206 BC.
The story of the tomb’s Terracotta Warriors will be displayed alongside important artefacts and research relating to the formative years of the Chinese nation, from the pre-unification Qin Kings (307 to 221 BC) to the First Emperor’s legacy in the Han Dynasty (206 BC to AD 220).
David Fleming, Director of National Museums Liverpool, said staff were hugely excited at the “unmissable opportunity to see artefacts of great historical importance in the flesh”.
The exhibition will span three periods of more than 500 years and will include a number of objects that have never been displayed in the UK.
Liverpool has Europe’s oldest Chinese community.
We have been given an entry time of at 12.30 pm to view this once in a lifetime exhibition, followed by free time in the World Museum and surrounding area.
