This was my reason for visiting china in 2010 was to see the world expo. I was frustrated with the unbelievable lines to see the major pavilions and by chance found out that if you were a foreigner you received preferential status to visit the china pavilion. After visiting the pavilion during my last days in china I realized there... More

The splendor of the 2010 expo will not last much longer, but for now there is still plenty you can go see here. Worth a visit for the beautiful walk by Huangpu river and to see some of the buildings still up.

We went to the area to find a particular destination and wandered throughout the expo area. You'd think it happened in 1910, not 2010... The buildings are mostly completely abandoned, including restaurants, metro stations, exhibition halls, and so on. Everything is fenced off or under construction, and it's all rusted and falling apart. Other than the new China art museum,... More

This palce is really huge. I went there as an visitor to an exhibition. It had various exhibits from many countries. Place it self is quite quite huge and you could be walking a lot. But I dont see anybody would want to see this if there is no exhibition going on. Otherwise very jice place

The place is just packed with people. You would have to wait hours to get in. Plus there is not much stuff there anymore, people moved some of the excellent stuff away.

went there on 1st may and got the free entrance. The exhibition about ancient civilization through cartoon images at level 9 was rather impressive. Worth visiting.

I normally avoid museums when I travel, preferring to see unique landmarks and historical buildings to paintings. However, I consider this museum a must-see. The "Along the river at qingming festival exhibit” was breathtaking- make sure you spend enough time appreciating it. I very much enjoyed the rest of the museum as well- some excellent Chinese art and the exhibit... More

I never wrote the review when I went in 2010, so this is a little late and outdated. However, the Expo was magnificent. Just HUGE. It was so much fun to go around to every different countries building and see what they had to offer. Weather it was a projection, movie, interactive games, food, DJ, or other shows, it was... More
