XI'AN, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- A new museum hosting bronze chariots and horses opened to the public recently in Xi'an, capital of northwest China's Shaanxi Province.

Featuring complex structures and colorful decorations, the two bulky bronze chariots and horses unearthed at the mausoleum of Emperor Qinshihuang are considered the "crown of Bronze wares." They were excavated in more than 3,000 pieces and cultural relic experts spent eight years restoring them.
