There are lot of small art galleries packed to this old industrial area & therefore lots to see. Liked about the chances to meet in some galleries the artists & have a chance to discuss their paintings. Mostly focused to contemporary art. During Saturday afternoon visit there were also some openings of new exhibitions and some galleries offered free snacks... More

If you've been to Beijing's 798, Shanghai's M50 will not be unfamiliar. Though I was hoping to get the same vibe M50 felt rather mellow somehow. Still it was a nice day visiting galleries and talking to the curators about the exhibits.

Large area with galleries and workshops... Some busy, some deserted.. All sorts of contemporary art right down to some nice souvenir kitsch for the tourists...

I loved this place and stayed for 2h. You kind of walk in artists studios and i saw plenty who was working on new pieces. You can really feel the importance of art in a dictator. And it showed in many artists pieces. There are restaurants there as well so you don't have to stay hungry. Outside it is plenty... More

We visited the 798 art district in Beijing and loved both the galleries and the energy (even though we went on a weekday). We were hoping the M50 area would be much the same. We also went on a weekday, but it was dead. We saw probably 20 other visitors over 4 hours. The galleries were all open and there... More

A whole neighborhood devoted to art and artists. Some old school, some new wave. All fantastic. We recommend that you put aside a whole day (10-6 pm) to wonder in and out of all the different studios and gallery spaces. So much wonderful art to see and to buy. Great daytrip.

There are some fantastic galleries and creative spaces here, plus an opportunity to get something (vaguely) unique for a good deal. If shopping for pottery, it is worth looking around a few spaces as prices can vary and there is some repetition of stock of smaller items.

Worth a look for a real mix of art. Lots of little studios which all seem to be open and welcoming visitors.. Variety of styles from simple, tourist appeal to photo studio etc. , Nice buzz about the place but not necessarily the highest priority on an itinerary (we added it on from a trip to the jade Buddha so...

It just so happened that I went when one of the galleries (Shun Art Gallery) was hosting a free event featuring a Julliard-alumn violonist along with free breverages and snacks. It was quite an experience! It was my first time attending such an event and it was wonderful. The art was exquisite and the music was great! The atmosphere was... More
