If you want a comprehensive view of how Shanghai developed into a sprawling metropolis that it now is, a far cry from what it was just a few decades ago, then a visit to this museum is a must. The miniature 3D model of the entire Shanghai area is stunning, to say the least.

The SUPEC SHANGHAI Urban Planning Exposition Center is the best starting point for exploring Shanghai. It shows the old town with historical pictures and intetsesting comparison to newer pictures. With each floor you climb up it is showing more of present and future. My highlights have been the 3d model of the town and the animated all around "flight" through... More

There is SO much information here- text, pictures, maps, interactive exhibits, etc- on the city, it’s actually a bit overwhelming. The model of the city is the highlight, but this is also a great place to go if you want to learn about Shanghai’s history, development, ethos, future plans, so on. Sometimes it did feel a little propaganda-y, but mostly... More

with your student card it will only cost 15 yuan. It is not open on Monday. I've been here before and it had a really good exhibition about the old life in Shanghai with cartoon like photos and they've changed it into contempory photo's which won't take you that long. It's a nice hour or hour and a half that... More

This is a good starting point in Shanghai. If you like architecture this is a must go. In a quick visit you'll have an idea of the City project and, in the end, it will be easy to go here and there.

The Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall is a nice addition to the other sites you should see here while you are here in Shanghai. There is plenty of info about the growth of Shanghai throughout the Exhibition Hall with very interesting facts/displays and of course the model of Shanghai is truly amazing. While you are looking at the model (in... More

The SUPEC was easy to find (line 1, peoples square, exit 4). If interested, one can easily spend 3 hours there. The lower floors are about Shanghai's history the upper floors about planning, the present and the future. Personally I liked the upper floors best, because they are more playful and interactive, using new technology to fascinate you.

This was a really cool museum. There is a lot to see and read and a lot to learn. The most impressive thing is on the third floor. A model of the entire city of Shanghai! It takes up the entire floor! It is impressive. Every few minutes it shifts from day to night time and lights up. It is... More

SUPEH is a modern museum that gives a great overall history of Shanghai and its neighborhoods and architecture, and crowns it with a huge scale model of the city. It's a must see for any urban planner or architect visiting Shanghai
