Good for a say 3 hour overview. Old Shanghai, today and a look at the future. Easy to get to near Peoples Square.

I started planning this China trip about 6 months ago and this was at the top off list when I made it to Shanghai and I am very pleased to tell you it did not disappoint me. You could really make of it what you want to. A quick hour to kill, or in our case about 4. There is... More

Beautiful, mindblowing and stunning. At 30 yen, it is a must see, when trying to comprehend how big Shanghai is. The only thing I found anoying was the lack of information regarding the biggest buildings and landscapes :)

The model of Shanghai is the only attraction worth visiting at the Urban Planning Museum; though exhibits occupy four floors of the building, they're all quite boring. Even the model itself is in a tired state, with lopsided buildings and areas that look as if they've been hit by a hurricane (which is ironic since a typhoon reached the city... More

Very interesting museum explaining the urbanization of this tremendous city. The Shikumen architectural style is very well described and the 3D map of the city is great. The shop corner is very poor and very deceiving. This museum is a must see for anybody who is interesting in the urbanization of Shanghai.

Whenever I am in Shanghai w/ someone who has never been to this most amazing primary tier 1 Mainland megalopolis, I take them to this most amazing museum. Not to be missed if you are near People's Park or simply have to taxi there.

My father is an architect and to see a scale of the whole city is jaw dropping. Very interesting and it also has a lot of history about this area of Shanghai. Old pictures that can make us understand how the city has changed and grow.

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
