Do not go to the remaining Saudi Pavilion!

I gave this place four stars because I loved the China Museum and definitely recommend it. But don't go to the Saudi building - the moon boat - for anything. You have to buy a... read more

Now it is named as Shanghai Art Museum. Closes at 4:30PM. So, we were late an hour but still had a nice exterior look. Many paintings and colourful designs. Seems fine.

For everyone who is interested in Architecture this place is a must see! There are many interesting buildings and even a big shopping mall. I recommend you to go on the terrace of the shopping mall (there is a coffeeshop) The view from there is breathtaking.

I gave this place four stars because I loved the China Museum and definitely recommend it. But don't go to the Saudi building - the moon boat - for anything. You have to buy a ticket and there is literally nothing in there. Not only that, but it is a lot further to walk there than it looks at first.... More

The Pavilion was build to host the Expo 2010. After that, the pavilion is used as a museum (China Art Museum). It is very beautiful because the architecture, landscaping and exhibits. Inside the museum there are many escalator stairs and places where you can have a quick lunch.

This place is worthy half a day if you have much time in Shanghai. But if you just have 1 or 2 days, it can be skipped coz it is really far from downtown of Shanghai (about one hour on the way). I got to see the display of modern arts, mostly paintings, and it was great to learn we... More

For me the Mercedes-Benz was a nice one, with a futuristic building like UFO plate. You can going to the... More

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.
