OK, we didn't go to the museum but we rode the Maglev train out to the airport and back. A great experience. As the photo shows we travelled at 301 km/hr for most of the journey. This is not the highest speed a Maglev can travel but the operational speed on that particular train. Interestingly it was not as absolutely smooth as I had imagined but still rocked a little like a normal wheeled train. We rode on the Chinese high-speed train (wheeled) a few days later to go from Xi'An to Beijing. On that we travelled at 297 km/hr and it was just as comfortable as the Maglev. It is highly recommended that you try the Maglev in Shanghai. It is an economical and unique experience.
