This museum turns out to be better than you would think. I'm a planner so I love this stuff anyway but the story of the development of Shanghai is told in so many different and interesting ways. The scale model of Shanghai is unbelievable! so is the fly-through video that puts you right in the middle of a 360 degree... More

The Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Centre, a 5 storey strucure located immediately adjacent to both the People's Park and the similarly named Metro station, is a treasure trove waiting to be explored. Its name does it a dis-service as it houses numerous exhibits including an extremely extensive floor mounted model of the current downtown area and both a video presentation... More

An urban planning museum? Yes! And well curated one at that. This museum can be viewed in under an hour, and I highly recommend it. The single best feature, an enormous, 3-D scale model of the entire city of Shanghai. The model is roughly 35 meters long, depicting over 45 square miles that is central Shanghai (Manhattan is about 37... More

Nice exhibition hall about the history of Shanghai through the ages, from early times till becoming the largest city on earth now. Lots of pictures, several topics like the foreign occupation and concessions, architecture, urban planning, water management, green environment, things for kids as well, all well documented. Shanghai in miniature as a highlight. Divided over several floors, maybe the... More

Summary: A great download if you have any interest in how cities are created. A wonderful museum describing how Shanghai came to be. But the most breathtaking exhibit is the model scale of Shanghai. Simply amazing.

Advanced urban planning which lays out a ratio of 30% green landscaped areas to built environment. Don't miss this opportunity to view probably the largest 1/500 model in the world. Currently China’s urban population is expanding at the rate of one million people per year, and since the 1980s well over 100 million Chinese, and probably closer to 200 million,... More

Shows how committed the city is to being #1 in the world. Main feature is a 1/500 scale model of central Shanghai showing the effect of proposed development.

Most of the contents of the lower floors are historic in nature to allow the visitor to understand and appreciate how Shanghai was developed. So be prepared to read a lot. But the most impressive experience is the top floor where the whole level is devoted to a somewhat miniature model of the whole city. It's pretty cool as you... More
