Shanghai History Museum, Shanghai

Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
See a vast collection of art, documents, and other memorabilia of the city’s long history at Shanghai History Museum. Because the museum does not have a permanent residence, most of its miscellaneous treasury remains in storage, while only a small portion sees the light of day at locations such as the Oriental Pearl Tower or the Shanghai Library. From a total of 30,000 items in the museum's possession, more than half of them pertain to the city's modern history. Inspect many notable items including the wax figures, Gu Embroidery of insects, fish, and flowers made by Han Ximeng of the Ming-Dynasty. The museum also showcases a bronze cannon which belonged to the Qing Dynasty general during the First Opium War and an ancient Taiping Heavenly Kingdom coin. Shanghai History Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Shanghai Edition.

  • 东方明珠塔内的参观使我失望,而一层的上海历史博物馆拯救了我的心情! 博物馆非常漂亮华美!看得出主办方的精致用心。博物馆有很好的展现出上海的历史,从上海的开埠到上个世纪20s-30s年代的远东繁荣历史,都很好的展现了传统与前卫的碰撞,却又那么和谐的画面。感觉毫不突兀,漫步于这博物馆中,使我感觉好像漫步于40s年代的上海一样。 真是难忘的回忆! 很值参观的博物馆!

  • If you're going to the Pearl Tower you should swing through the museum. It's really interesting, and the 3D scenes and models are fun to look at.
  • Though this museum has an admission charge, I found this museum to be well worth the cost.
  • 裏面有一些比較上海特色的過去講解,還有一些珍貴的文物和史料,覺得比較有知識性。
  • 能够很好的感受上海的历史,可以租用耳机,会有解说。
  • 可細細感受上海的歷史!經費許可!!租用耳機導覽!!10元吧!!
