This is a great place for anyone interested in urban issues and who is curious about Shanghai's impressive growth. Admission is 30RMB and is over 5 full expansive floors. The exhibitions are mostly photos but also superb diararmas like the photo taken on the model of the entire city, block by block. It also culminates with a 360 degree 'flight'... More

It holds an exhibition of the development of the city thru the years. It has an amazing huge model of the city which worth the visit. It is a nice place to spend a Sunday afternoon. Never too crowded.

This filled in a pleasant couple of hours. While as a visitor there is only so many photos etc one wants to look at the miniature display of the city. The 3D virtual flyover was great.

Wandered in there while ambling around People's Square. The miniature version of the city is amazing, reminded me of one of the better Lego world reproductions, but bigger. Lots of historical maps and video presentations to show the history. Also contains an art space (small separate fee) which was quite interesting. I wouldn't go back, but glad I went.

For tourists looking for touristy things to do, this location has a nice wow factor. Where else can you see a huge model of Shanghai in all of its expansive glory? I've taken guests here twice. You don't need much time in this place. An hour should do. See the model and watch the IMAX movie and then move on... More

We groaned when we heard that we were being taken to an Urban Planning Museum, feeling that we were being forced to have some culture whether we liked it or not. The museum contains a large model of the whole of central Shanghai but apart from that, there is little else of interest to the ordinary tourist. We just found... More

Our tour guide Annie Guo took us to the Urban Planning Exhibition Hall. It was very interesting providing a lot of history on Shanghai. Having Annie with us enhanced our experience with her own knowledge of Shanghai. She is very well read. I was surprised by the interactive exhibits in the hall, of particular note was the fly over exhibit... More

If you're near People Square and have an hour to spare then its worth dropping into this museum just to see the vast model of Shanghai. It really brings home the scale of the place. The 360 film aerial view of Shanghai was also good. Not sure anything else is worth spending time at.

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