I attended the 2010 World Expo and thought this would be a great museum to relive some of the experience all over again. I exited the World Expo Museum metro station and walked across towards the entrance. Unfortunately no one was around to explain why...More

The building is really well designed. We found the first 4 halls much more interesting than the last 3. Especially a lot of interesting architectures there. Easy access from subway. No entrance fee. Audio guide is okay.

Opened in 2017, this official World Expo Museum in a quiet part of Pudong was a great find. It's convenient to reach as it's immediately outside a subway station. Because there's not much publicity about this new museum, you'll probably be only one of a...More
