Haven't seen "The First Emperor: China's Terracotta Army" at the High Museum of Art?
Even though the exhibit has set a new record with the highest-attended exhibit, with more than 260,000 visitors, the High is offering extended hours so more people can see the terracotta soldiers. The exhibit closes April 19.
The exhibition, which opened on Nov. 16, 2008, was inspired by one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. Featuring more than 100 works, including 15 terracotta figures, the exhibition represents one of the largest groups of important works relating to the First Emperor ever to be loaned to the U.S.
The extended hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. every Thursday through April 19; 10 a.m.-midnight March 20 and April 17; 10 a.m.-5 p.m. April 6, April 11 and April 13; noon-5 p.m. April 12; 10 a.m.-10 p.m. April 18 and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. April 19.
Never miss a local story.
There will be special ticket discounts, including $5 for all college students with valid ID in March and half-price tickets 4-8 p.m. every Thursday in March. The King Tut exhibit in the Atlanta Civic Center and the First Emperor ticket combos are $25-$39. Another ticket combo is "Whales and Warriors," with tickets to the Georgia Aquarium and the High. Those tickets are $23.50-$38.50. You may visit the Aquarium on the same day as or any time within 7 days of your Terracotta visit.
