    Good storytelling from the birth of the car to the modern ones. They have a lot of old cars and a bit fewer really new cars. The area is a bit remote. The overall impression is very good, it's a must for car enthusiasts!

    Many classic and golden era cars, few modern. If you like cars then it worthy to travel to the other side of Shanghai to see.

    It's smaller on the inside than it looks from outside. 2-3 hours of fun guaranteed for every motor-head. Wort going there despite long distance from city centre.

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.
