We're not Jewish but we found a visit to this very good little museum to be a very moving experience.
We very much enjoyed viewing this important historic location, and understanding the role that China had in saving 23,000 Jews! It was a unique and eye opening experience. The museum was very well done!
Worth the trek from the subway station, but we got turned around. However we eventually found it. This museum is a must for every Jewish visitor. Here is where some of our tribe went when the rest of the world was deserting our people...What a wonderful story and a wonderful welcoming community of Chinese who gave these Jewish families refuge...

We reached the museum easily from the purple subway line. It cost In October 2013 five yuan each to enter. The museum has three floors of exhibits + two new building outside .

Nevertheless, it was intended to contrast the fate of the lucky few who escaped to Shanghai, vs those... More
This well done museum is worth a visit. Shanghais hosted almost 25,000 jew who were refugees from the Holocaust. In addition to highlighting this there is an extensive and well done exhibit on the Holocaust itself.
This is a very interesting visit about Shanghai's Jewish refugees. Pretty far from the center of the city but definitely worth seeing
