It is a wonderful experience , every time I visit the museum I learn something new and admire the planning exhibit at 5F . It's worth visiting to understand the planning system and the support systems provided in and around the city

My companion and I stumbled in here essentially by accident. Huge surprise. The exhibits and layout were very impressive; imagination and creative design were exceptional. Recommend very highly.

To make it short: This place is just awesome! If you are interested in how Shanghai became one of the biggest and most interesting cities in the world right now you have to visit this museum. It shows how drastic the face of the city has changed especially in the last 50 to 100 years. There is a very nice... More

This is one of the best expositions in the museum on People's Square in Shanghai. You can feel how gigantic the Shanghai is. Nicely presented as daily and nightly options, can impress the people.

This was a recommended place to visit for us and we were glad it was on the list. Insights to the historical and architectural development of the city along with biographies of the most influential people, i.e. Lazlo Hudec. The huge city scale model on the third floor is worth the price of admission alone. A most enjoyable experience in... More

This place has the model of Shanghai and you can see the transition Shanghai has gone through over the years. It is amazing to see the growth of a city! Visit this place first. It will give you an idea about the places you would like to visit. The subway stop is in the basement of this building. It may... More

This was a recommended visit and we're glad we did it. It provided insight to the why's and how's of Shanghai architecture and design. One of the better museums of this style I've visited, quite worthwhile.

We stopped here first as part of our tour of the city where our guide pointed out the old part of the city and the new. It is on a timer to light up as if viewing during the day and switches to a night view. There is a bit of history throughout this museum but this is clearly the... More

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
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.
