“Architecture and Planning Geeks - this is heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

What's the world's biggest architectural model? The model of the city on the 3rd floor, thousands of sf of every building. The museum itself is a beautiful building, and it also includes exhibits on the new(ish) airport.

“Unexpected Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

The name of the museum sounds boring. Once inside there are excellent exhibits that are interesting about Shanghai and its development. I enjoyed the movie in the round. It is a museum that I recommend for visitors to go to before exploring the city sights.

“Eye opener”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is a brilliant display of present and future urban Shanghai in scale model. There is also a theatre showing a film of Shanghai in 4D.

“INTERESTING EXHIBIT”

If you have any extra time this would be a very interesting visit. I personally enjoyed it more than the Shanghai Museum.

“Amazing sight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is a wonderful sight to see the heart of this ever expanding city in one room. It's puts it in perspective for any age. don't need more than an hour as the main sight is the floor with the minature city. ...20-25 mins max and another 20 to glance at the other floors and gift shop. Worth the brief stop. Fun to find your hotel or location on it.
