Xian Museum & Small Goose Pagoda (Xiaoyanta)

Xian Museum is one of the city’s most recent attractions, and stands in an ensemble of buildings both ancient and modern which provide a refuge from busy streets. Like the Shaanxi History Museum, it contains many pieces from archeological digs in the area, as well as jade ornaments and impressive calligraphy exhibits. It is particularly noted for its collection of Buddhist art and artifacts.

The modern museum building echoes classic Chinese architecture, and complements the nearby Small Wild Goose Pagoda, which was built in 707 AD. This 15-tiered structure is a little more refined than the Big Wild Goose Pagoda which was built a few years earlier in the same light stone, and its solid construction has withstood numerous earthquakes.
