On our way down from the observation deck at the Oriental Pearl Tower (see my review), we unloaded next to the entry to the museum. I'm a sucker for museums, and this one is very good! Follow the exhibits in order, and you'll see how...More

Much of what you see in Shanghai is relatively new compared to, say, Beijing, but it is no less fascinating. The museum does a good job of recreating colonial-era Shanghai and presents events through a Chinese prism. The displays are a bit amateurish and the...More
