By visiting this exhibition you can get a feel how shanghai would look like in a near future. Most of the exhibition in mandarin, except few multimedia in bilingua. There are few men shouted and want to sell ticket to me. Just ignore them and walk straight to the entrance for official ticket.

From black and white films of old Shanghai to futuristic ideals of sustainable city living. The humongous model cityscape has skyscrapers that light up.

I love this museum. It was very interesting to learn how the city has developed and the plans for it until 2020. On the top floor there is a complete scale model of Shanghai. They have a terrace with a nice view but unfortunately was closed for repairs. This a must!

I absolutely love this place. There are scale models of almost everything from old and famous buildings of Shanghai to a giant scale model of the city with models of almost every building in Shanghai. It's a truly amazing spot, good for people of all ages.

A huge place which is well organised. I can recommend the 5th floor with the plan of the "future" Shanghai, like a Minority report movie.

A beautiful and diverse set of exhibits about Shanghai past, present and future. Very well done. A magnificent scale model of downtown Shanghai. And a very nice cafe with beautiful views that always has tables available.
