1933 Old Millfun, Shanghai

(190+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
A raw concrete modernist structure, 1933 Old Millfun once operated as Shanghai’s cattle slaughterhouse, now serving as an industrial park space. Surrounded by roads and water, this five-story art deco building with a brutalist feel was designed by a British architect in 1933. Feel a chill run down your spine as you examine the building's huge gutters and bridges, which were used to transport the unfortunate animals across large halls and maze-like spiral galleries. Transformed into an exhibition space, the building now hosts fashion shows, concerts, and press conferences, and is also used as a conference hall. Make 1933 Old Millfun a centerpiece of your Shanghai vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Shanghai vacation generator.
