Spent a very interesting afternoon at the museum. Particularly liked the way that the city was laid out in one giant room. Well worth a visit.

Great museum of Shanghai's history, current and future state. They make it fun with movies, models and even computer games. The museum captures many facets. I really enjoyed learning more about the Shanghainese and the city that is theirs.

There is quite a bit to see here. Great for learning about the history of Shanghai. It was relatively quite when my wife and I visited. The most impressive part was the one floor that was just a massive model of the city. It was amazing to see and that alone is reason to check this out.

I was very shocked at all the high reviews here. Most of the museum was fairly bland. There's lots of pictures of old and new Shanghai which allows you to compare the progress of the city but I feel as if this would be of more interest to people that live here than tourists. I get it; every city changes... More

There is a scale model of the city and really makes it easy to see how insane the progress has been.

This is a great museum with different dimensions, all fascinating. One floor provides you with the history of Shanghai, complete with photos and models. Another takes you into a digital tour of the modern-day city, and has miniature replica of the ENTIRE city - which alone is a much see. Then if you still have time and energy - which... More

I didnt even really want to go here, i thought it would be boring and have nothing of interest to offer, but i was proven so wrong. It was honestly fascinating. There is a huge collection of shanghai photographs over 100+ years as well as many other small,interesting exhibits. However the greatest thing is the huge model of Shanghai which... More

You will see the city of Shangahai as a model which is updated on regular basis. You really should go there to get a nice overview of the city

Near the park and mall, great display of historical information about Shanghai city and it's evolution in the vibrant modern city that it now is. Some examples of the overseas planning where not the best but the information about Shanghai and China where great. Visionary information in some areas. The city model is great and the view looking down from... More
