This is my second visit and first for my teenage children who are hard to please. They both loved it and we spent almost 3 hours there, looking at each display thoroughly. Each display comes with simple but informative explanations. Very well done.

We visited this museum as we had read favourable reviews here and the queue up the tower was not worth the time involved when we only had a limited amount of time in Shanghai. It was everything the reviews had said - well worth the visit and very interesting. I found the amount of information in English to be sufficent for me and at 35 Rmb (approx £3.50) money well spent.

This is an excellent museum and has very good displays with enough English signage to make it easy to appreciate everything on display. The age and condition of some of the items on display is incredible. You need a good couple of hours to get around and you could spend longer in here.

We had a too short visit to the Museum, allow minimum 2 hours, its a great space well organized and super interesting, it reflects the diverse Chinese civilization is well exposed. Avoid visiting on weekends!
