I enjoyed my visit to the Power Station of Art. In particular, it was great seeing huge art pieces and using the space so well. I was privileged to go into the “chimney” for one of the exhibits. To be honest, there were not that many exhibits

PSA (power station of art): 3 hours wait in a crazy long line for the paying exhibition during October week, but the free exhibitions were not too overrun with visitors. If you have some time to spare, it’s a nice walk back to town along the river.

Often in China I have found that they will have an "open" museum/water/store and it is in fact still being renovated or built. This is the case with Power Station. There is a lot of construction going on outside and inside the building. While there were impressive pieces of art, some floors will completely closed off. I'm glad that the museum was free when I visited but I wonder if it will still be when they are done with construction.

I went and it was free but there are in the process of installing a new exhibit. It was relatively empty. Equidistant from Xizang south road and Nanpu bridge stops. I wouldn't go here if you have only a few days in Shanghai.

Well quite a choice. A beautiful building. But I would not call the collection interesting. The museum lacks a permanent collection like Tate Modern. Sorry, but if you build a museum in a former powerstation, you have to compare.

Disappointing visit. The venue and space have lots of potential however as non Chinese speaking visitors , even with the audio guides provided in English we found it hard to follow the flow and the intent of the exhibitions. Far more needs to be done to provide a decent experience for foreign visitors

I visited the Shanghai biennale 2018 on day 2 and was impressed by the quality of the works of art, a lot of it is of a similar level as you would/could expect at eg. Venice biennale imo.
However, the practical organisation was below standards: I spent the whole day (11-19hrs) visiting the exhibition, but once you get in, there is no way to get any food or drinks unless you exit the biennale and buy a new ticket to enter again. I was willing to spend money on lunch, drinks, snacks etc. in the museum but they make that impossible. Who comes up with such a bad idea? If that’s your way of charging more, then just double the entrance fee (now 30rmb) it will be less frustrating. Cloakroom had no organisation whatsoever so it took ages to get your stuff back. Staff has a ‘I follow the rules and don’t care about the customer’ type of attitude that goes with what I described above. Hopefully they will quickly adjust these practicalities so visiting the biennale becomes a pleasant experience.

Oh so similar to the Tate Modern in London - on the river, a bit hard to get too, a lot of concrete and a huge cavernous space - all depends on exhibitions but great views of the river on L3 and also from the top floor open air roof top. A bit rustic and not as commercial as others but the space is well worth the visit.
