I was in Shanghai on business and unfortunately didn't have much time to see the city. I had half a Sunday free and was staying in the Four Seasons in Jing'an district so decided to make the most of the immediate area. I had done a little Googling and found some positive reviews on the propaganda art centre so decided to give it a visit. As other reviews have mentioned It's advisable to take a cab to this place, it's in a pretty obscure location and unless you have Google maps pointing you in the right direction it's easy to miss. It's located in the basement of a small set of apartments and has an entry fee of 20 RMB per person. Inside this den of Chinese history you will find an homage to China's revolutionary period and beyond. It will take you about 30 - 40 minutes to go through all the poster art and read all the captions as well as taking a browse through the merchandise that is for sale. A refreshing change from Asian temple mania and a cheap history lesson rolled into one. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
