Really good to visit but not on Chinese new year, so many people were there, but you can easily spend the day there, lots to see and info in English. Nice cafe clean English toilets but closed on Mondays.
This is one of the most impressive museums of the world, period. From the ancient bronzes to the brush painting and ceramics, the museum amply demonstrates the sophistication and genius of China's long civilization.
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.

I emailed my Chinese tour guide Jonathan G. from Viking River and he said you can't bring the large suitcase in but they will hold it for you. Go to the back entrance facing the highway NOT the people's square entrance and look for the wheelchair rental service area. They can usually do the luggage hold or tell you who to ask.
