What an awesome Museum
Feb 2021 • Solo
What an amazing few hours I spent at this Museum. It is beautifully designed and the displays are very nicely spaced out and presented. Nearly all the cars are labelled in Chinese and English, with enough information about the display.
Don’t forget to get an audio guide, which requires a deposit. They never told me about it, so you need to ask. The numbered displays have a 1 to 2 minute commentary about them. Well worth it. Note that you need 4 digits for the machine, so add enough zero’s in the front, to complete the number. It took me a while to work it out.
The staff are most helpful and have a fair bit of English.
I also loved all the interactive opportunities on the top floor. You definitely need a 2/3 hours to do the place justice.
There is a MacDonalds near the museum and a tiny restaurant inside.
The only issue - it’s far from the centre of town. If using the Metro, take line 11 and get off at Anting station. It’s a fair walk from there, or just take a Didi. Note that Anting New Town is very close by and is a German styled area - worth a look if you are there.

We were pleasantly surprised by this collection. Amazing array of vehicles from all over the world. Well laid out. Plenty of room to wander. As previously mentioned most information was provided in English, very helpful. Well worth the journey to visit. The grounds were nice to walk around as well.

Note: about 25 minute walk from Metro station, but an easy walk.
Note: we were shocked to see guests allowing children to climb on some vehicles and to cross over the "boundary lines" keeping people away from the cars. Many cars had hand prints. These two events disappointed us greatly.

The collection was outstanding and we spent about 2.5 hours walking around. There is a significant area for children as well. Small sitting area with drinks available. Plenty of restrooms. If you have the time & like cars, we recommend you go visit.

A great selection of top quality examples of a mix of Chinese, American, British, European and Japanese cars on display in a world-class facility! Cars on display have information placards in Chinese and English languages. Plan on spending a few hours here!

A chance to see some Chinese brands that you wont see anywhere else. Lots of fantastic European and American cars as well very nicely displayed in one unique long spiral gallery over 4 floors, a homage to the Guggenheim.

Far but worth a visit
Apr 2019 • Solo
It was really far as what I had expected. I also had a big problem figuring out my whereabouts but once I got there, it was a different story. They had all sorts of both classics and recent cars in their collection. If you are a car lover you need to visit this place. Get a train to the closest train station then taxi. Sadly you can’t walk to this place because it’s too far from the train station.

If you're a car lover, this place is a must go. It has a collection of over 90 cars, across multiple decades. In their collection there are some amazingly rare cars, as well as some quirky ones. Theres even a small play area on the 3rd floor for the kids

Awesome museum - great collection of cars - all in perfect condition - huge variety - with a visit.
Aug 2019
This is the best auto museum I have ever visited. They collection of cars is amazing. There are cars from every decade from 1900 to present. There are sports cars, sedans, trucks, everything! There are brands from around the world - and many of the most famous: Ferrari, Lamborgini, Jaguar, Rolls Royce, Mercedes, Bentley, Aston Martin, Chevrolet, etc. There are rare and common cars. They are all perfectly maintained. The museum is beautiful. If you like cars - you must go here.

Well curated and laid out exhibits. Worth the trek for auto enthusiasts. Kid friendly top floor.

This isn't centrally located so the subway may take a while to get here. Then it's a 20 minute walk from the subways station. If you're into looking at cars through the ages and also learning about mechanical design then this may be worth it. There is also a park in the back where you can take your kids. The top floor is really kid friendly with interactive exhibits.

You are looking for something not typical Shanghai when visiting Shanghai? The Auto Museum is worth visiting. It includes a great collection of historic cars in a perfect condition with a lot of interesting background information.

Out of Town but worth the journey
Dec 2018
Visited on a Sunday so it was quite busy. A little way out of town but easily accessible by the excellent and cheap Shanghai subway to Anting station (near the F1 circuit), then a short taxi ride or about a 15 minutes walk. Have to admit that despite there being a queue of waiting taxis on the rank, none wanted to lose their position for such a short run, so waited for one to join the queue and asked him to take me which as he hadn't waited at all he was happy to do. No such problem on the return leg as a couple of taxis were waiting opposite the museum. Back to the subject of this review! I was honestly amazed at the wide variety of different cars from all over the world, all in excellent condition and clearly much loved. Where did they get them all from? Cadillacs, Lincolns, Porsches, Aston Martins, Rolls-Royces, Maseratis and Ferraris, plus all sorts of interesting old Chinese and Russian models. All were well laid out and the design of the museum using ramps between the floors reminded me of the BMW Museum in Munich. I really recommend this museum to anyone interested in cars and transportation. The Dutch GM of my hotel had lived in Shanghai for 17 years but had never visited nor even heard of the museum, but will now go on one of his days off. And, there's a very good shopping mall right at Anting station with plenty of shopping and dining choices. Enjoy!
