My daughter is keen on contemporary art and so we made our way out to M50. It is an old warehouse complex with artists in residence working and displaying their art work. Some are good others are average. Two stand outs were island6 - mix of art with technology and also paintings by Mr Sanzi. We went on a freezing... More

Worth a visit. It's pretty small, but the galleries are welcoming, not snobby, and the work is interesting. There are some cute shops and cafes in the surrounding industrial neighborhood as well. Petite Musee D’art inside M50 is a great place to pick up unique gifts. I got some beautiful jewelry there, including a modern interpretation of a traditional jade... More

This is a favorite spot for myself. I typically visit 2 or 3 times per year. It's nice for a casual stroll through the narrow alleys and the different art galleries. The outdoor areas sometimes looks/feels a bit dusty and in need of better maintenance, but their are a lot of really nice clean professional art galleries..... This area has... More

If you like arts and crafts, you cannot miss this art district. I would suggest to take a taxi because it is far away and the taxi are super cheap! I really love visiting the small gallery. Take your time, you need minimum one day for visit almost everything

After visiting the Jade temple it's well worth to take the walk to M50 art center. It will take you about 40 minutes if you stroll down the alleys of real China in Shanghai. M50 is quite a large area so you'll need at least 2h to explore the galleries. There are a lot of them there. Some really interesting... More

Looking for some artistic escape then M50 is a great place to go... It offers some nice coffee houses and galleries and you will be able to stimulate your brain with some nice art works.

has a great shop to buy high end porcelain mugs, vases, scarves. also some arty gift shops(some overlap from shop to shop, but fun still). Some of the Art is top notch quality. Wish we had alloted more time there to check out each place. great industrial vibe too.

It is easy to think that SHanghai is only about luxury brands, swank hotels, and Italian cars. It is, but there is much more if you take the time to look. Make the time for this spot, it is a great look at contemporary art and design and a great stroll. There is a great coffee shop and if it... More

The M50 brings together an eclectic mix of art and artists working in a variety of materials and media, from pottery to paintings, leather work and fabrics, to sculpture and furniture. The diverse exhibits are interesting from an art perspective, but there are some units selling antiques - for example Art Deco Chinese furniture - which also provides an insight... More

even thought this covers only a small area, this place is filled with numerous installations and art cafes. little far form the nearest metro, i took the bike taxi service and paid around 10RMB to reach the M50 area. Saw lot of photographers out their models to get some perfect shot with beautiful art backgrounds maybe. Worth visit
