Walking between the different galleries could take up hours of your time! It's fascinating to see some pieces of rebellion hiding in some of the galleries, in the shape of statues or sarcastic paintings.

Me and my friend went here for a stroll and it was well worth it if u are in the art scene. There is a really cool book shop as well can't recall the name though but it served good cold noodles and books mostly about architecture. I'll come back probably every 3 or 4 months to have a look... More

If the weather and ait are nice, this is a pleasant way to spend an hour or two, walking around the buildings and throughout the galleries. It is not on my "must see" list for Shanghai (unless you are an art lover, of course) but nice if yu live here or have an extended stay in the city.

I did finally venture here on a Sunday by taxi (the galleries are closed on Mondays). It is a warren of really interesting small galleries, some of which are quite good. The place was empty when I got there around 11 but was active when I left. One neat place is a free art school. The amateurs painting there were... More

I would say this is not a bad attraction if you have some time to kill on a weekend. Perhaps modern or pop art enthusiasts may find this space more enthralling, but for a casual observer like me, it's just somewhat interesting. M50 seems to be a communal space for galleries of aspiring artists, and although there were some exhibits... More

Contemporary Chinese Art in previously industrial buildings. Lots of artwork in different mediums. Prices range from affordable to really expensive. Local, and often very talented artists exhibiting unique, diverse, and interesting artwork. galleries are both selling and exhibiting art. In many galleries we saw, and sometimes chatted, with the artists themselves. In others there was a sales person and in... More

In this maze of little streets in what seems to be a residential area of Shanghai you will find numerous art galleries, selling and showing art with new exhibitions on a regular basis. It was a very relaxed atmosphere on a Sunday with a steady, but far from overwhelming, stream of visitors. All local Chinese artists and design. You can... More

I stumbled upon M50 while browsing the internet for free things to do in Shanghai, not an easy task. It involved a couple of line transfers on the metro, then a 15 minute walk. As you are getting closer, graffiti covers the stone walls on the left hand side of the road. I spent a couple of hours weaving my... More

A wonderful place to buy, browse, chat and experience art and artists in a repurposed warehouse community. Unpretentious, friendly, and knowledgeable folks in all galleries. Very close to the Shangtex textile museum which is very well done as well. I'd give it 5 stars but a couple of places were closed on Saturday at 11 am. OK what was I... More
