Small museum of Chinese maritime history
Nov 2017 • Solo
This small free museum on the campus of Shanghai Jiao Tong University provides a nice introduction to Chinese maritime history and an in-depth look at the career and shipping empire built by C. Y. Tung in the 20th century. The first floor gallery covers the general maritime history while the second floor covers C. Y. Tung and the growth of his Orient Overseas Line (today Orient Overseas Container Line). While it doesn't approach the scale of the much larger China Maritime Museum on the outskirts of the city, it is much more readily accessible physically and can be easily toured in only a half hour or so.

Finding the museum is still a bit of a chore - indeed we tried finding it on our last visit a few years ago and failed, but fortunately better information is available today on the internet and easy to follow walking instructions can be readily found to get to the museum building from the Jiaotong University metro station (line 10).

Find out about China's long maritime history
May 2016 • Couples
Tucked away on a leafy university campus is a small museum full of maps and model ships. Text and leaflet in English and Chinese. Find out about Admiral Zheng, the great maritime explorer from the early 1400s.
5 minutes walk south from Jiaotong University metro station, turn right into the campus at a gateway marked '1954'. Turn right again along the edge of a large square lawn, The museum is a two-storey balconied building ahead on the left.
