What travelers say:

Beilin Museum is easy to find - just follow the City Wall east on foot from Yongningmen Gate and you’ll get there. It’s ¥65 entry at the time of writing and if you can read Chinese characters it’s worth every penny! I cannot... but I still found it worth the visit. Also called the Stone Forest Museum, it houses a massive collection of calligraphy written on stone tablets, dating from the Tang Dynasty (and even earlier) right up to the more recent centuries! The calligraphy is beautiful and easily appreciable even if you can’t read it 😁 Moreover, there’s an exhibition hall that showcases beautiful statues and tombs that date back through the dynasties and I honestly found them beautiful and amazingly interesting. The museum store is also a great place to purchase unique gifts (or treat yourself!) with calligraphy items that I haven’t seen elsewhere in Xi’an. Beilin Museum in Xi’an is definitely worth visiting!
