  • Big modern building stands in the corner of people's Park side, had become a museum here. Hotel urban planning exhibition, miniature, and was an exhibit of the exposition. Had to go take a closer look and less time at some time in the short Shanghai Museum to avoid the exhibition was intrigued and compelled to leave the hotel early.

  • A delightful Museum and urban studies, as it turns out, is a very interesting and important science! Especially liked the interactive exhibit on the top floor. Don't repeat my mistakes! Remember that not all of the buildings layout built!

  • Nice 3D display of the entire Shanghai area. Definitely worth seeing, and only 7 yuan per person on weekdays.
  • Uninteresting museum. Almost no original objects, just reproductions of old photographs. Exhibits are full of boosterism. The big model of future Shanghai is impressive, but you don't learn much from it.
  • This center reflects the urban transformation of shanghai through time. Nice to visit
  • Went here to see the broad 3d map of Shanghai and it didn't disappoint. Nice museum to briefly hop by.
  • Very nice
