#9 of 74 in Museums in Shanghai
Hang out with the stars at Madame Tussauds Shanghai, a waxwork museum with a large set of regional and international celebrities and politicians. Opened in 2006, the facility consists of many themed areas, decorated to create believable scenes--some fictional, some real--for each of the wax statues. Consult with the president in the Oval Office, or with Sherlock Holmes as he works on a case. Just make sure to bring your camera so you can try and trick your friends back home.

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. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
