Top ways to experience Shanghai Science and Technology Museum and similar attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Century Park
Shanghai residents see Pudong’s suburbs as the place that grown-ups retreat to when they’re ready to settle down and stop living in the cramped confines of a refurbished lanehouse. The areas around Century Park are some of the most desirable as they are in close proximity to the Metro Lines, granting easy access to the heart of Puxi. The park itself is a huge draw, it’s one of Shanghai’s biggest and there are sports fields tucked into one of its corners, but five-star hotels, museums and great malls make life in the Century Park area easy for the homesick foreigner. And if living in a Western bubble in China isn’t your thing, there is plenty of local flavor to be had in between the major development. Some of Lujiazui’s futurism can also be seen in buildings and sculptures throughout the neighborhood as well.

I was expecting more
Oct 2020
My expectations were to high I think, I looked on the internet before going there and it says it’s one f the most important museums in the city. So I was so excited, but when I got there, I think I saw everything in 30 minutes. I didn’t find it interesting, few things, I even didn’t want to take any pictures. The animals in the exhibition are full of dust that you can actually smell it. The museum is big, I liked more the museum from the outside.

Packed even during covid19
Jul 2020 • Family
Went today with my wife and son and it was still packed. Everyone did have a mask on but the threatened were closed. This would be a good place to keep my eight year old busy for 2 to 3 hours but waiting in line for some events was a pain. The rainbow area was fun for kids and so was the robot area.

Fake Market (Xiangyang) Near Shanghai Science and Tech Museum
Dec 2019
A market set in a circle dissected with several corridors. They is a lot of similar stuff all fake but some like T shirts are so cheap that who cares. I got three name brand tops ( $129 each at home ) for $20.

The antiques were made yesterday so avoid them and electronics are a problem as power is different in different countries and it may not work.

I would avoid the electronic stuff as power at home is an issue so check you can use it in your country or you may need adaptors etc.

Access via Line 2 Metro Gate 8 is really easy. It is a 3 Yuan trip from most places in the city. Metro easy to use like the London Tube.

We found the Pearl market the best place. Two in particular Lucy Jewellery and Candy near each other at the entrance. The cover the range of quality and price well below what you will pay at home.

Educational if you understand Mandarin
Jan 2020 • Family
The exhibit are mainly in Chinese. A lot of mini shows at each exhibition hall. I would advise no need to pay extra for the 4D, IMAX or dome theatre.

It was an OK visit to the museum
Dec 2019
The museum is very spacious and there is translation in English as well. Location is very convenient by the Metro (Line 2). I found that the animal exhibits were a little out of place. There were robotics and astronomy but it wasn't that appealing to me. Some of the exhibits looked rather drab and out dated. Entrance fee is 45rmb but expensive and I personally didn't enjoy the museum.

Armillary sphere
Nov 2019
" A model of the celestial globe constructed from rings and hoops representing the equator, the tropics, and other celestial circles, and able to revolve on its axis."
The armillary sphere was perhaps the most important type of astronomical instrument in ancient China. It was first invented by Luoxia Hong in the first century BC. After Han times, the structure of the armillary sphere became increasingly sophisticated by including more and more rings representing various celestial movements as recognized by the Chinese astronomers. By the eighth century, the Chinese armillary sphere consisted of three concentric sets of rings revolving on the south–north polar axis. The relative position of the rings could be adjusted to reflect the precession of the equinoxes and the regression of the Moon’s nodes along the ecliptic. To counterbalance the defect caused by too many rings, Guo Shoujing from the late thirteenth century constructed the Simplified Instruments which reorganized the rings of the armillary sphere into separate instruments for measuring equatorial coordinates and horizontal coordinates. The armillary sphere was still preserved because it was a good illustration of celestial movements. A fifteenth-century replica of Guo Shoujing’s armillary sphere still exists today.

. The Museum metro stop on Line Two takes you right there. Handy is a good restaurant and Plaza shopping
Oct 2019
This is a highlight for kids. Take childminding turns with someone while the kids are in there and go shopping in the AP plaza. Right by the train station huge courtyard access We found a restaurant which had vegetarian food. We didn’t have to select from piles of pork and turtles etc heaped up on rice. The prawn spring rolls were delicious. This who area gave us no hassles. We loved it. Just make sure that you validate your metro ticket in a machine before catching the metro. Also, the cash machine ate my ANZ debit card. Money in Shanghai is always an issue. Banks being close fo4 the October National days gave us a week with practically no cash

Perfect for a rainy day!
Dec 2018 • Family
If it’s raining and you have children it’s perfect.

Almost all of it has been translated into English however the cinema area lack many English viewings.

The animal area is wonderful and perfect for children however it does a have a jungle like area which can be difficult for push chairs/buggy.

The interactive area is great and there are many more interactive parts scattered around.
