What people are saying:

Before going, I need to make an online reservation. Now I can make an appointment on the day when there are fewer people. It is basically closed at 5 pm. A total of four floors. I went to Nanbo before and found that some items are still relatively similar, such as the bronze hall on the 1st floor. The ceramic museum on the 2nd floor, the painting and calligraphy museum on the 3rd floor, and the 4th floor have money and jade. If you are interested in antiques, you can download a "pocket guide" APP. There are hundreds of explanation points in it. You can understand the cultural relics more clearly. Some of them may know a rough figure by looking ➕. Some can't even guess, this APP is very useful, listen to the explanations all afternoon, even if you can't hear it back home can listen [smile]

Additional Information


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.
