An exhibition "China's First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors Exhibition" opens in Liverpool on the 9th February and runs until the 28th October as part of Liverpool's celebrations to mark 10 years since it was made European City of Culture in 2008.
Taking place at the World Musuem in Liverpool the exhibition will boost tourism and confirm Liverpool's position as a "arts and culture" destination. Exhibits will include 10 life size figures and a terracotta cavalry horse from the burial complex of Emperor Qin Shi Huang. Visitors from the UK and Europe are expected to visit the exhibition. The Museum expects increased tourist numbers (already 700,000 visitors a year) for this exhibition and will be arranging a programme for schools and public events throughout the time the exhibition remains in Liverpool.
Liverpool has much to offer the visitor. Take in a tour of the old haunts of the Beatles, enjoy a boat cruise, visit the cathedral and the maritime museum or soak up the atmosphere at Anfield, home of Liverpool's most famous football club.
