This exhibition was amazing in it's detail and very informative. It helped us understand where Shanghai has come from and where it's headed. I wouldn't have understood the magnitude, purpose and significance of the city's rapid growth without visiting this exhibition. Great for the kids too.

Go and see the whole floor dedicated to a scale model of Shanghai as it will be in a few years time. The model is incredible.

The other floors are interesting and all in English, but if you are pushed for time they are not the most fascinating bit of Shanghai. See the model on the top floor and skip the rest would be my advice.

Wow, what a cool museum! I'm not usually one who is huge on spending travel time at museums, but I could've spent the entire afternoon here. Definitely wish I would have given myself more time. The information is interesting, there are plenty of great photos and models, and on the 4th floor, there is an entire scaled model of Shanghai! This is a can't miss!

The large scale model of Shanghai was definitely the high light of our visit, along with the wrap around video of shanghai which was really good. However we found the rest of the exhibition quite boring and very much like a musuem. If you are pshed for time in Shanghai then you're not missing much by skipping it, but if you have time and want to escape the heat then its a worthwhile hour or so. Overall I would recommend.

A comprehensive exhibit that contains more than the average visitor will want or need to know. The main feature for a casual tour is the scale model of the city on one of the upper floors; one of the perhaps underappreciated aspects is the 'then' and 'now' photo collection which graphically portrays the vast change in parts of the city over a comparatively short period. A visit to this exhibition hall could be conveniently tied to a visit to the Shanghai Museum, which is nearby.
