    Shanghai Museum of Natural History should be the largest museum in China. Tickets are bought at the ticket office at the entrance. Adults are 30 and children are 12. It's really not expensive. There are many real animal specimens, especially birds, which are said to have collected 70 [%] of the whole country. There are different kinds of exhibitions, such as birds. From top to bottom, the exhibition stands are biological chains from Raptors to ordinary birds. Four moose grow from young to old. Sichuan snub-nosed monkey Yunnan snub-nosed monkey is lifelike. Temporary exhibition hall in the negative second floor, will change exhibits from time to time, fixed exhibition hall inside many of the exhibits are precious. I went in the morning and went out in the afternoon, feeling endless. In the restaurant on the second floor at noon, the price is almost the same as KFC. In Shanghai, the price is really not expensive, especially the taste is good. But if the children go, remember to make an online reservation in advance to participate in the activities, free of charge, very interesting. When you enter the library, remember to go to see the tickets earlier.

    Keep going out with my niece! The new branch is located in Jing'an Sculpture Park. It's very easy to find! It's definitely my paradise! Personal favorite dinosaurs! I also watched the BBC's 3-D Dinosaur film (the first show at 11:50, ticket price 40/person, need to buy tickets to enter the museum and then buy the ticket, the 4-D cinema is right opposite to the 2F entrance ticket). Great love! Tickets are 30 per person, and children's student tickets are 12 per person. We buy tickets at about 10:40 a.m. on weekdays. The display shows that there are about 1700 + people in the library at this time, and the basic people in the sample area, which is popular in the interior, walk close to people. It's a pity that there are too many bear children (about 4-8 years old) and parents during the summer vacation. Those animal specimens are clearly written beside the specimens can not touch, but parents put their children in the fence to let them touch this and that! Get drunk! Because they want to see a movie, they will come out halfway. The staff will knock a night-light stamp on the back of their hands so that they can enter the library again. It's still very good! All the way from 2F to B2M, the favorite animal specimens and prehistoric animal models are still! Love to no avail! Later, I was so hungry that I hurried out of the restaurant at 14 p.m. to look for food. There are also restaurants and cafes in the restaurant, but the DP commentary said that it was not tasty, so it was not considered...

    It's like a competing display of British natural history museum. Grand statues and dinosaurs moving with sounds. Children are amazed and feel ecstatic. The animals are life-like and well preserved for some of the species, especially birds... Adults 30RMB, children shorter than 1.3m are free

    First, it's big and fun. It's certainly possible to play for half a day. Time should be arranged by oneself. It is suggested that not too much water should be brought in. There is direct drinking water in the library. Just bring a bottle with you. There are thirty-one ice cream in it, which is more expensive. Second, you can play from the top floor or the bottom floor step by step according to the order of floors. Without order, it's too tired to walk. Third tickets can be purchased directly from the official website of the Shanghai Museum of natural history. Alipay adults can not charge children under 30 or 1.3 meters. However, it should be noted that if an in-theatre reservation is made, the children also need to make an extra reservation, and the logic of the ticket is not the same. At first, I thought that an adult must bring a child with him, so it should be enough to make an appointment.

    Now the Shanghai Museum of Nature is located at 510 Beijing West Road, Jing'an Sculpture Park. Traffic-friendly Metro Line 13 Natural Museum Station No. 1 turns right. Before you go, you should pay attention to the public number of the Museum of Nature by Wechat, so that you can make an appointment in advance to "escape from the Cretaceous", "Big Bang" "flying butterfly wings", "Little Museum" and so on. And activities. It's very advisable to experience them with your children. Personal favorite is the life river on the 1st floor and the natural exhibition area.

    Today, I spent a whole day on the third day of New Year's Day. I heard last year's junior three, junior four is the peak of the flow, so I want to go in early, as a result, I slept in a lazy sleep, to the library has been more than ten o'clock. Today, the highest number of people is more than 5,000. First of all, parking - "navigation to the main entrance of Beijing West Road, opposite the main entrance is the vertical Datian Road, the road is not long, two or three hundred meters bar, the end of the road is the 688 square parking lot. Five dollars every half hour, 80 yuan a day, and we'll stop there. After visiting the sculpture park in the evening, I found that there was a parking lot made of spare yard on Shanhaiguan Road behind the museum, and there was no entrance price (see photos). In addition to visits - "online ticket sales (or I did not find it), downloaded Wechat, and did not make any reservations for any projects (because of the Spring Festival,), can only buy tickets on site. Line up to buy tickets, 30 adults, 12 children. Security check in. On the right-hand side of the door, tickets are sold. There are three movies, tickets in the morning are almost sold, buy an afternoon "ichthyosaur". Then take the escalator to the second floor to check tickets and enter the hall. You can visit the hall in the order of the second floor, the first floor, the negative floor, the negative 2M and the negative second floor. According to the strategy of netizens, take the vertical elevator directly down the negative second floor, there is a service desk behind the elevator (with photos), where you can book a free show - "Cretaceous explosion and biological origin (about this name). The defendant told me that the appointment was completed before ten o'clock. Back to the second floor, we are ready to look at it layer by layer, but we are at the peak of the growth of upstream visitors entering the library. Everyone starts from the second floor, which is too crowded. So we went down to the negative floor directly. Sure enough, there were fewer tourists below. There are also some games that can participate in, such as digging treasures or something, because they do not want to rush to and fro, they did not intentionally arrange, but also happened to catch up with one. It's time for the movie. The cinema is outside the entrance of the second floor ticket checking. Talk to the ticket checker. He will stamp a fluorescent stamp on the back of your right hand. It can't be seen with the naked eye. Like the watermarking on RMB, it can only be developed by laser pen. After watching the movie, you don't have to queue up for the new visitors'entrance. You can go back to the "stamper" entrance on the left and continue to attend. In other words, our movie is not interesting, we can not watch it. There is a bathroom on each floor. Some layers have water dispensers to provide hot water. There's a restaurant, but we didn't eat. We brought too many snacks, so we didn't know the price of the restaurant. The collection of natural life in the library is rich. We walked slowly for six hours. We read it almost once. We didn't want to see it any more. We couldn't walk any more. If you look at each one carefully, one day is not enough. But that's what specialists or nature fans do. As an ordinary visitor, that's enough. There are some modern sculptures in the sculpture park. It's a nice day to visit. There is a special commission site in the park. It closes on the third day of junior middle school, but it is not seen. The museum is not far from Nanjing Road. It's powerful enough to visit the Bund at night.

    The five-storey pavilion, from the origin of species to underground mineral deposits, contains a variety of knowledge points, which is suitable for primary school students to learn from the sea. But for small children, animal specimens and fossils are the focus... There are enough dynamic sound effects models... The kid had a good time. Only desserts and drinks are available in the pavilion... If you don't mind, you need to be prepared in advance.
