Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor at The Franklin Institute

From Saturday, September 30, 2017 to Sunday, March 4, 2018 September 30, 2017 March 4, 2018 The Rittenhouse

Opening this fall, The Franklin Institute’s dramatic Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor exhibition reveals the secrets behind the 2,000-year-old army of clay statues that guarded the tomb of China’s first emperor until their discovery in 1974.

The Franklin Institute is the only East Coast stop for this monumental exhibition, which sheds light on the science, culture and craft of the stoic, silent guards.

The exhibition was developed by The Franklin Institute and the Pacific Science Center in Seattle. Philadelphia and Seattle are the only stops on this exhibition’s two-city tour.
