  • Just off of subway. Many small stall venders ready to negotiate. Most are very honest and accommodating. I had great experience buying luggage, electronics, and clothes. Worth a visit!  more »
  • I would recommend this museum if you are in Shanghai together with children. The information and its explanations can be trivial for an adult. Many of the exhibition rooms are crowded and also noisy. ...  more »

  • 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 However several exhibits were out of date or broken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.
