What people are saying:

The Shanghai Film Museum is a rather special museum for a movie fan. The Shanghai Film Museum is very close to the Shanghai Film Studio. It is written on the Internet as No. 595 Caoxi Road, and the actual entrance is on Film Road. Register with the health code and you can enter the museum with your ticket. Starting from the fourth floor, strolling from top to bottom, the Avenue of Stars "walking the red carpet" just arrived on the fourth floor. The festive awards music and flashing lights made it very lively. From the introduction of Shanghai films before liberation, many filmmakers and films did not understand it. As a result, I walked and watched and understood, and I also learned how good the movies in Shanghai were before and how good the filmmakers in Shanghai were. There are also human-computer interactions in some links, which is worth seeing. It took about an hour and a half for the whole process to get a little understanding of the past, splendor, and development of Shanghai movies. The overall feeling is that the museum has spent some thought, but there are few things that are amazing and worthy of memorization.

    Comprehensive film museum focusing on early Chinese film history.

    Comprehensive film museum focusing on early Chinese film history. Offers some general (technical) movie background, but one should bring interest in Chinese film. Good English audio guide available.
