What people are saying:

It’s easy to purchase discounted fare from Ctrip. Aurora is an excellent museum on ancient Chinese artifacts! The permanent collection, which represents about 5,000 years of Chinese history from the Neolithic Period to the Qing Dynasty, consists of jade, ceramic figurines, porcelain ware, and Buddhist statues. More impressive than the extensive collection is its presentation. Besides the tastefully designed exhibitions, Aurora features an educational section on each floor of the museum, where they demystify the legendary artifacts by showcasing analyses of the materials, techniques, and tools used. Very eye opening! A must go for those interested in ancient Chinese artifacts.

The Aurora Museum is located in the Lujiazui area of Shanghai’s Pudong District. The museum showcases the incredible collection of the Aurora group’s Chairman, Mr. Yung Tai Chen who, over 40 years, has gathered ancient Chinese treasures including pottery, porcelain, Buddhist statues, and jade artifacts of great historical significance. The library on the 5th floor of the Aurora Museum houses a rich collection of cultural heritage literature along with a substantial amount of publications in English and Japanese.
