  • This is a high quality museum for children ages 6-14. You can easily spend 4-5 hours here.
  • It is a huge place. I was not able to go inside but the place is one of the greatest attraction in Shanghai.
  • This place is huge. I have never been to a science mueseum that is so big. At the same time, the muesuem has many experiments or exhibits that do not function properly. Still the remaining stuff takes a lot of time to see. If you are going with kids, suggest you pick the section most suited for your kids age. The place has enough for adults if you are a science enthusiastic. All movies are in Chinese. So that was a disappointment for the kids.
  • Though it is a big museum, it is somewhat outdated and could probably use a makeover. Many of the things you can interact with had eighter a maintenance sign on them or just didn't work. All instructions and information signs are in both Chinese and English.
  • More science-tainment than actual science. Beautifully made artificial african landscape, but otherwise not very inspiring.

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.
