There are lots of great historic and comparative photos plus the large 3d model of the city - the size just blows me away!

Gives you an idea of urban planning on a grand scale I suppose and the huge scale model of the city is impressive. However, the rest of the information about the evolution of Shanghai was fairly poorly presented and could have been far more interesting. The centrepiece of the lobby is a rather bizarre gold sculpture showing some of the... More

The place to go is the floor that shows shanghai in one entire floor. It has a scaled down version of the city.

This excellent design of the building itself is already a scenery place, regardless of what could make you shocked inside, you need at least 2 hours to walk all the 5 floor building to see all they display, in Hong Kong we don't have such a big space to exhibit the Urban Planning, the future 50 year planning makes you...

Our guide took us here just to view the vast 3D model of Shanghai. Do this on your first day to get your bearings and to truly appreciate the scale of the city.

The replica of the city was by far the best part of the Urban Planning Center! It gives a great idea of how much growth has happened in Shanghai in the past 15 years.

At first, I thought it's just like another museum, but once inside and went through it all, I am very impressed, the city planning, the the theatre and the revolving icon of Shanghai was very interesting. Should spend time in it.

The most interesting thing about this was the truly massive model of Shanghai. A group of more than a hundred local primary school children arrived just after us and considerably compromised our experience (along with deafening us with their shouting and the PA announcements from those accompanying them). I left feeling that I hadn't got the information I'd expected. Much... More

Excellent organization. Permits you to enjoy the entire powerful Shanghai construction in a very nice display. Go over all floors, do not miss a thing.
