Visited on Dec. 12, 2012- if you show your students ID, your ticket is discounted to $30 rmb. It is fine for that price. I had a good time just spending the afternoon with a friend there but I live in Shanghai. If you are only in Shanghai for a few days skip this unless you have kids. Kids will really enjoy this place as it has a pretty fun rain forest exhibit, ocean exhibit and animal exhibit. If you have been to larger museums in the past, this one may prove to be less amusing. A lot of the kiosks that are there to tell you about the animals do not work. In the space area- the space jump did not work which I was personally looking forward to. Human body area- they have a section where you can use a treadmill, cycling machine, and other workout equipment to test your endurance to see which machine is best for you- this would have been interesting but it was also closed. It just seemed like a lot of the museum was closed off or under maintenance which was really a drawback. The ocean area was quite interesting as it shows animal anatomy that is fun and interesting even for adults!
