  • We live in Shanghai and this is a wonderful attraction for a day-trip with kids. It’s well and designed, has a lot of things for adults to look at and for kids to touch and play with. It’s all sorts o...  more »
  • I highly recommend this trip to anyone slightly interested into glass or into spending some time into a nice and creative space. We went there - 2 adults and two girls age 10 and 9 - after quite a dri...  more »
  • In the Museum in China ever to visit most children friendly, great museums in (the exhibition will be designed by the Taiwan people and to better understand the modern is). Turning to the main Museum, children's Museum and maze, DIY, is 6-7 hours. But the price is high (adults 1 person 180, 80 children), had the child field to add minutes for parents, and sticky tables and chairs in the restaurant and wipe with a wet tissue became black points are deducted. Time schedule go to manufacturing exemptions, and main hall not only tickets one at a time, so take note.

  • The museum have a fantastic exterior, contains a lot of modern glass pieces, have two cafeterias, and have a show showing how to make glass. The show makes it 4 stars, otherwise some parts of the museum are sort of empty, or full of glass art with no history. The shop is good though, have things in glass you cant buy otherwise. Anders
  • Very informative. Some beautiful artworks. Top, age-relevant activities for kids: glass painting; melting and shaping glass; etc. Nice glass blowing demonstrations; exciting kids activity center. Various food and beverage outlets. Definitely worth a visit!
  • I've visited the museum several times, as I live in Shanghai, and it was always a great experience - the museum and the exhibition design are exquisite. The information is really well presented, with both English and Chinese texts, easy to grasp for adults and children. It's a great place for families with children: DIY and craft workshops, glass blowing demonstrations and a new museum that is dedicated to children: Kids Museum of Glass. I'd reckon it's one of the best museums in Shanghai, and the world. Well worth the trip to Baoshan. Tip: Do visit the space they have for glass design exhibitions - Keep it Glassy - big designer names are on show and the set-up is impressive.
  • An amazing place, one of the best museums and exhibitions I've seen in the world, not only in Shanghai! They recently opened the Kids Museum of Glass - a kaleidoscopic and colourful experience for children - and it's also highly interactive. It's easy to spend a whole day here and not get bored for a bit.
  • It was great and had many eye catching exibitions.

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.
