What people are saying:

1. Browsing time: at least 1.5 hours, if you need to watch the show, please add additional time. 2. Parking: There is a parking lot inside, no parking fee is charged. 3. Tickets: 30 yuan per adult ticket (it is said that this year is the tenth anniversary, so the ticket price is reduced from the original 60 yuan). Children under 1.4 meters are free of charge. 10 yuan for the elderly over 60. *It's so affordable. The shape of the pavilion is truly unparalleled. There is a super big Ming Dynasty Dafu ship inside, and I was amazed by the wisdom of the ancients after seeing the decomposition introduction of the Dafu ship. From ancient times to the present, the pavilion introduces the evolution history of ships, and has many experience equipment, which is very suitable for popular science education and children's knowledge.

    Well curated museum but a long way from central Shanghai

    You have to love boat design and history to come here considering how far it is from downtown. That being said, you can take a subway to the Dishui lake and take a cab to this place. Very well designe...
