Given all the great write ups I expected more. It may have helped had I had a guide or even an audio guide - both not able to be purchased there.

This fascinating museum was part of a full day guided tour of Shanghai, but it stood out as a highlight. More extensive than its location and surroundings suggest, this collection is truly a labor of love. If you have any interest in China's 20th century...More

This small previously private collection of insanely colored and sometimes poorly printed posters from new China's enthusiastic propaganda machinery is worth a side visit when you're in the French Concession area. While the originals go for hundreds of dollars, at least, you can pick up...More

Its located at the basement of a residential building which makes it a bit tricky to find, but there are some signs around to lead you inside - the display is small but still interesting to view with loads of pop-art propaganda posters around which...More

My history buff husband loved this. Interesting to look at all the posters. Gift shop is very pricey but if you like the posters, it may be worth it.

I was shocked all these posters still exist in communist China. It's worth finding in the basement of some random apartment building and spending an hour or so there.

This is a private museum and hard to find but well worth the effort. Here you will see artifacts from the Cultural Revolution, some of the few to escape destruction as authorities sought to erase the evidence of social unrest. Chilling overview of that period...More

If you love posters and old Chinese culture of historical values, this is definitely worth a visit for an experience. You can even purchase some interesting collectibles for memories of old China history & culture.

The museum is located in the underground floor. The entrance free is about 20RMB/person. From my point of view, this place is a "must go" if you are interested about the history of China. I also recommand the shop which is connected to the museum....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
