This is a supposed museum of Shanghai history. In fact most of the "artifacts" are models or reproductions. There are some interesting photos and film clips on loops.
And it is not a serious museum of Shanghai history. It's kind of a sanitized version for people who aren't interested in history. For example, there is no mention of the the Japanese occupation or of Communist Revolution. It simply mentions in passing that the foreign concessions ceased to exist in 1943.
On the plus side, no one of any nationality or political persuasion will be offended by this museum.
Devote the time to some of the other terrific sites in Shanghai. I wish I had.
