“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

When I saw this place on our itinerary, I thought why do I want to see an Urban Planning Exhibition? But OMG. I'm so glad we started our tour of Shanghai here. It really helped set the background for how Shanghai developed and the history of this great city.

It probably helped that our tour guide Portia from China Odyssey is born and raised in Shanghai and she's very proud to be a Shanghairnese.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

There are lots of great historic and comparative photos plus the large 3d model of the city - the size just blows me away!

“Not very inspiring”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

Gives you an idea of urban planning on a grand scale I suppose and the huge scale model of the city is impressive. However, the rest of the information about the evolution of Shanghai was fairly poorly presented and could have been far more interesting.

The centrepiece of the lobby is a rather bizarre gold sculpture showing some of the main buildings of the city. However, it could win awards at a kitsch festival.

“Good place to get to know Shanghai”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The place to go is the floor that shows shanghai in one entire floor. It has a scaled down version of the city.
