Great special exhibits and the small scale model of the city of Shanghai, with lights. Well located on People's Square, so a visit to the square and this museum are a good day's sightseeing.

Architecture fans, and anyone who enjoys a glimpse into the future of a city will enjoy this and the Model of the City is excellent also. For me personally I was not enthralled, but I can see its draw for others, I personally would recommend the Shanghai Museum in the park across the way if you have to choose between... More

This is an attraction you simply cannot miss, the future planning that Shanghai has put into rebuilding their city is something we in Australia can only dream about, You need to think BIG and I mean on a much larger scale that the average largest Australian City, they can and will have more people in Shanghai that the whole population...

I could have stared at the model of the city on the top floor for an hour. That's what you come for. The other exhibits are interesting too but I wouldn't spend too much time on them.

It's a visit that satisfies. You can see through the last century the evolution of Shanghai. It's fascinating both from the architectural point of view and the historical one. you can also experience a virtual 3D tour over the city that your kids will surely enjoy. It's priced only 30 RMB. to be seen.

Would not spend a lot of time to visit this exposition. It's OK, liked the scale model and the 360 degree movie about Shanghai.

Shanghai is so big that this exhibition helps a lot to understand how the city has grown and how is actually built.

Love seeing the huge city model, but parts of it are not accurate and in need of repair. Still, gives you a sense of the scale of Shanghai.

When we first went to Shanghai about 8 years ago, our guide told us that after we left, we should throw away our map because it wouldn't be good the day after. He was right. Eight years ago, the city had 16 million population; today it has 24 million. The city keeps growing and growing, and this growth is so... More
