  • Four years ago when the second floor was not completed, this time to pick a working day, almost no one, can enjoy the antique, mainly to see EType and 300SL, there is no regret. Lights and sets can be said to be perfect. Gear host Jeremy Clarkson says EType may be the last truly great thing that Britain has ever made.

  • The Museum is situated on several levels. A lot of different cars, starting with the first and till our days. There is a really unusual and very interesting. The only thing that didn't like a bit weird Exposition. There is no possibility of a little closer to machines

  • ... for children and adults. Good, bilingual explanations on the history of mobility on the basis of a timeline, which includes also the motorization in China & Shanghai. Some remarkably well-preserved exhibits of local manufacturers, but also historic cars of world-famous brands. The Museum has a very clean and tidy. Unfortunately too few seats to stay - that is owed but probably high visitor numbers. Nevertheless a clear recommendation for a visit. Directions by subway (line 11, Anting) possible. Walk about 1.5 km to the Museum.

  • 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.
  • Shanghai Auto Museum is located in Anting town, Jiading district, Shanghai Expo Park Road No. 7565, located in Shanghai International Automobile city, the Museum is China's first on the subject of car industry. Museum mainly display the history and technology of the car exhibits include more than 80 real cars

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.
