It would be innovative and interesting if it would be 90's. Also most of the interactive screens and displays didn't work.

I'll be honest - I made a beeline straight to the scale model of the city and skipped the rest of the museum. So - there may be a lot more than what I saw. But - I loved the scale model. It was super fun to try to find our apartment, and my husband's office, and it's great for... More

Want to see how big Shanghai is? The model and information is quite good. Just need an hour or 2 to tour through.

The place is very well done. Do not exit any of the stairwells as they are locked on the bottom floor. I exited the top floor thinking I would enjoy the view as I walked down the glass enclosed stairwells. Until I tried to exit on the bottom floor. The door was locked on the bottom floor.

It was very interesting to see the layout of shanghai. Can't believe how big it is! Rather small museum only 2 levels, worth the visit to see the size and history of shanghai.

Massive scales of Shanghai! Had time to kill and walked over to the exhibition hall. Wonder if the only city to have an exhibition hall like this.

If you are interested in the history of Shanghai, you will find this museum fascinating. Lots of before and after photos. Plus there is a great video that is like a motion simulator that feel like you are flying through the city.
