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

It's been a real pleasure walking around the museum (now it is called Art Museum Shanghai) as well as inside the museum. One can spend half a day easily inside the museum, taking a lift to the 12th storey and walking down to the ground level. There is a range of permanent exhibitions and temporary ones. I have viewed the... 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

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.
