Birthplace of Chinese Communist Party, Shanghai

2.7
#21 of 74 in Museums in Shanghai
Vivid wax dolls, artifacts, and pictures capture one of the most important moments in modern Chinese history at Birthplace of Chinese Communist Party. The museum spreads over two floors, the first of which shows the living room where the Communist party was born, displayed intact as it was on July 23, 1921. The grand exhibition hall on the second floor offers a more general history, displaying photographs, documents, and revolutionary relics. Stroll around the wax hall, where you'll feel as if the great Mao Zedong is giving a stirring speech to his revolutionary comrades right here, right now. While the museum has Western-style restrooms, its information boards are only in Chinese.

  • A small museum in the middle of the French quarter. The building with only a few rooms and an exhibition to the founding Congress of the Communist Party. Again while looking at the depicted historic scenes and the desire by Mao to rid China of foreign domination, it is a conscious why Mao is revered even today by many Chinese, despite many HUngertote during his reign. Free entrance!

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers.
