China’s Terracotta Warriors at National Geographic: Special with The Madison Washington DC

September 14, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The Madison, A Loews HotelThe National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C. is prepping for what promises to be an extraordinary exhibition featuring the largest collection of significant artifacts from China ever to travel to the United States. Opening in November 2009, "Terra Cotta Warriors: Guardians of China's First Emperor" will allow visitors to stand face to face with the famous terracotta warriors discovered in an archeological dig outside the city of Xi'an. Almost 2,000 years old and numbering in the thousands, the life-size clay figures were buried in underground pits to accompany China's first emperor, Qin Shihuangdi, into the afterlife. When it was found in 1974, the tomb complex was deemed one of the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century. Check out the exhibition-- featuring 15 life-size figures, weapons, armor, coins, and more-- and bed down at the museum's official partner hotel, The Madison, A Loews Hotel-- located just four blocks from the White House. Rates for the "National Geographic Museum Terracotta Warriors Package" start at just $149 per night and include accommodations, two premium "anytime" exhibition tickets and a 20 percent discount coupon for purchases in the National Geographic Store. Valid from November 19, 2009- March 31, 2010.
