A little difficult to find, but completely worth it. I walked past this a few times and was completely baffled by the instructions on both Baidu Maps and Google Maps that kept on telling me that I'd overshot it. I asked a few locals, but...More

This is a must see place if you want to get a sense of post WW2 China and see that through the lens of propaganda posters. The most unlikely location and feels almost unsanctioned - a great way to spend a hour or two

I went there with a colleague, at first not really knowing what to expect. So, it's relatively easy to reach, after some 15 min walk from a subway station nearby. Just follow the few signs at the location, to go to the basement entry. Then,...More

The collection is amazing. Takes you back in time! Bit hard to find the entrance, but do not give up! Yes... it is in the basement.

If you're interested in Chinese history over the last century, then you cannot miss this museum. It's a bit obscure in location but the locals know where it is. A wonderful collection of posters!

I visited here based on TripAdvisor reviews, & it did not disappoint. After our taxi driver left us outside an apartment block, I was a bit unsure, but the security guard showed us the way. It's great to see these pictures as it shows how...More

A beautiful visual way to learn more about the Chinese history of the 20th century. Not clearly visible from the street, but look for the building with the 'B' on it.

Almost surprised that the government allows this museum to operate. The posters are from the beginning of the People's Republic, 1949 - through 1997. This collection has detailed descriptions of the posters and the period of which they depict. Eye opening to see the difference...More

Even though is a little bit hidden, an absolute must do in Shanghai. The entry is 25 RMB, which is cheap for a private collection. The poster are are from the 1930 until mid 90's. The visit will give you a better understanding of the...More

This is a gem of a place. Posters were a primary communication media with the lower classes. Poster creation became a fine art. The period covered is from early 1900 to about 1990. They give a unique view of Chinese history. It was fascinating to...More

Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the
beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been
considered particularly fashionable by a majority of
Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do
choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw,
providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the
metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops
with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious
