City planning is hardly a subject which feels one with a sense of wonder, but it is very interesting to see how the rapid development of such a large city has been planned. I found the museum informative and well equipped for English speakers.

We came here because the Shanghai Planning Exhibition Hall is conveniently close to the Shanghai Museum, and because we are mildly interested in urban planning. Nevertheless, we had not expected to need more than 1-2 hours to get through the exhibition. - Far from it! We left after 2 hours when the museum closed, and came back for more. This... More

Admittedly I am a geography geek, so thus was right up my street. Lots of informative displays about different aspects of urban planning. I particularly liked the nostalgia section, with lots of photos of historic parts of the city. A great start to a visit to Shanghai- a good overview.

I'm actually a true fan of urban planning (to a fault). So this stop was a plan in action! They have laid out the history of Shanghai, the now and the plans for the future. I think it's more interesting for the academics rather than those looking for entertainment. If you are revitalizing your own community wherever you live, you... More

I love this type of work, laying out the whole city for us to see for ourselves, in one glance, the scale and majesty of this great city.

We went to this museum quite by accident, while looking for the Shanghai Museum. There is a small fee to enter this museum, but it was well worth it! The top floor had a temporary exhibit of paintings and their descriptions by an artist who'd grown up in Shanghai in the 1930's and '40's. They gave an interesting view of... More
