  • This museum is huge. I have visited the museum twice and not seen everything there. Yet despite its size, on weekends and rainy days it can still be packed with people. The animals section might seem ...  more »
  • 原來上海都有好多親子活動:公園,博物館,動物園等......都啱小朋友,只係中國太多人,一到假期,就人山人海。 今次有朋友帶路,到呢個科技館玩,內裡分好多個展館,其實唔只同科技有關都會有,佢連接有個科技館分館叫自然博物館。 科技館內彩虹兒童樂園及人與健康最受小朋友歡迎,有互動遊戲。 
  • It is a really modern and nice building but as a tourist attraction really sucks, is a 4 floors waste of time, 4D theater has a selection of really childish movies, technology exhibitions are really o...  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 However several exhibits were out of date or broken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.
