🧭 Shanghai History Museum is one of the most interesting museums were you can learn really a lot.
🧭 Getting there these days you need to make a reservation through wechat. Otherwise there is no way to get inside. Arrive in time, stand for a while in a line and here u go. You DO need and audio guide, cause without it you will be wondering around without knowing anything.
🧭 The couns exhibition hall is quite impressive, it showed Chinese coins of all kinds and shapes, some of them are bigger than my hand. The halls with traditional paintings and ceramis are amazing as well. I can watch those vases forever.
🧭 There were quite many things that turned out to be not what I expected, some of them really puzzeled me (like the fruit bowl on the pic #2)
Museum is located on People Square (Subway line 1 or 2), it is very easy to find.

The Shanghai Museum was founded in 1952. The new museum was built and put into use in 1996. It is located in Renmin Avenue, Huangpu District, across the road from the famous Peoples Square, which eats fried chicken. The building of the Shanghai Museum looks particularly like a cornucopia from the outside. Baidu Encyclopedia said that the overall structure is a combination of a square base and a round out of the building, with the meaning of China's round place. I probably believe it this way.
A few basic exhibitions, the first one I went to was the ancient ceramics hall. Oops, sigh, its really a lot of good things that have never been concentrated on a large scale. Collections can best reflect the basic level of a museum. A single piece of boutique can find a lot of angles to elaborate and express, not to mention these series of fine cultural relics, and think carefully, only to be thankful that they are not engaged in cultural relics research.
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.
