Free museum about Chinese writing brush and its Shanghai heritage 免费参观很值了!
Apr 2018
This museum is pretty small that I would suggest only half an hour wandering around the one floor. Although, to be noted the description is mostly Chinese only (10 minutes is enough if you don't understand Chinese language). The display and exhibits introduce the history of how craftsmen and entrepreneurs of the writing brush industry developed their businesses and relocated to Shanghai since 19th century. btw, a writing brush is the writing tool you need for Chinese calligraphy :) There are plenty of bookstores on Fuzhou road around this museum, some are modern and some are secondhand or old-fashioned, English bookstore available also. Since it's free, why not spend some time there? You go straight up to the second floor and put down your visitor info, and there you go. There are stationery stores nearby, also a bakery and a local noodles shop just 50 meters down the street by a crossroad, enjoy! 免费参观,还要啥自行车啊!里面介绍了十九世纪以来上海笔墨业的兴衰发展史,结合了近代的一些历史事件,很具体地讲了毛笔制作工艺,从选材到制作到市场,很值得一看! 里面很小,只有一层,进门直接上二楼,我建议半个小时左右到时间。五十米附近有静安面包房和一家本地小吃面馆(上海葱油饼要排队),点一碗十多块到面上二楼靠窗就可以俯瞰十字路口了超值哈哈

The area
Address
Neighborhood: People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.

Interesting Museum

Visited the museum today.

A shop on the lower level selling ink and brushes and the museum on the upper level. Lots of biographical details of famous Chinese ink artists and a varied selection of inks and chops.

Very limited as no signage in English but worth a quick look. Museum located on second floor - no elevator. Located next to the Wugong Hotel - just in case you get difficulties finding it.
