Additional Information


Located on the southern side of People’s Square, the Shanghai Museum is a large and comprehensive museum dedicated to showcasing Chinese art and history. Originally founded in 1952, the museum's collection has expanded over the years as the institution played an important role in saving historic artifacts during tumultuous periods in Chinese history such as the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. The Shanghai Museum's current building is a distinguished architectural combination of traditional culture and modern spirit. The museum's ten galleries dedicated to its permanent collection give visitors a broad perspective on the many facets of Chinese history and culture. As one of the premiere history museums in China, the Shanghai Museum is a true culture treasure and well worth a visit.
