  • He hoped to meet with a Museum at the height of a city as important as Shanghai. The building is architecturally impressive: imposing a great modern design. Unfortunately it is not the same level on the inside. The animal world is a sample of stuffed animals set in Africa, Asia and North America, and if you're animal lover is sad to see such a bear baby who had to kill to have your sample. The spider is very poor in regard to species and design. The space sector was disappointing, as he hoped to meet with the universe and only sample Chinese satellites, rockets and Chinese space suit. The only thing that I can rescue the Museum is space robots, that very dynamic is especially for children. PS: we could not enter any IMAX show or others to be only in Chinese.

  • Not overly impressive museum. I would rather recommend Natural History Museum located in Jing'an Sculpture Park. This one is not worth your time if you are for the first time in Shanghai. Maybe come here on your 3-4th time. :)
  • Very good museum with many excellent exhibits. However several exhibits were out of date or broken
  • Was pretty disappointed by this place, very "Old Fashion" museum, with a few cool items to discover. Many many kids running back and forth. Worth going if you bored to hell but other then that try different museum first.
  • Lots of things to do. It's a great museum to see all sorts of things. The robot exhibit is is always the busiest, but it is also the most interesting. A lot of stuff tailored to kids, but its a great place to visit.
  • A soso place not suggested for first time visitors. Shanghai has a lot of historical places and this museum is like any where else. Besides that, the facility is good and clean. RMB 60 ticket is acceptable.
