The Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall is a large six story building devoted to showing the development of the city and future plans. There are several displays on the ground floor including a huge map on the floor. But the main reason to visit the hall is to see the very large scale model of urban Shanghai as it is... More

I study sociology at university, and Urban planning and city living are some of my interests. I dragged my friend here whilst we were in Shanghai as part of an academic trip, and I really enjoyed it, and he did, too. Lots of information which was well translated, and it's just insane to see how such a huge city manages... More

There are better places to spend your time in Shanghai, unless you're interested in town planning, maps, models and a general history of Shanghai city's development.

I never thought I would want to visit and urban planning exhibition but on a recommendation I did and was delighted. The stand out exhibits are the scaled model of the city....mindblowing....and the 360 degree animation of the city put together for the Expo. $8 entry fee and you could easily spend half a day in here. Recommended.

This place is fantastic, you have to look at everything here. You get a really good idea of how the city evolved. The highlight is the model of the city itself. Not to be missed

After having a very boring time at the Shanghai museum, my husband and I decided to check out this place. We had to pay 30RMB and we were happy to. This museum is fantastic for adults and children. The architecture is phenomenal and on such a huge scale. We were really impressed that we could see our hotel in the... More

The tour was included in our travels with China Odyssey Tours. There is a very good display of old Shanghai along with a model of the Shanghai area

Spent a very interesting afternoon at the museum. Particularly liked the way that the city was laid out in one giant room. Well worth a visit.

Great museum of Shanghai's history, current and future state. They make it fun with movies, models and even computer games. The museum captures many facets. I really enjoyed learning more about the Shanghainese and the city that is theirs.
