A small museum which can be covered in ~30 minutes. Interesting place that teaches you about the Maglev technology, and also shows you the different modes of transportation from the past to the present.

Nice and free museum explaining different forms of transportation history up to and including the Maglev. Much of the Maglev information is technical and I wish I had brushed up on my physics. You can spend 30 minutes or more than 2 hours reading all...More

This place has been well thought out and put together and the Shanghai people are rightly proud of this amazing feat of engineering that they have commissioned. The whole museum lays out the developments and make up of Maglev technology and is extremely informative.

I wouldn't recommend making your way to Longyang Station specially for this museum. It's a good space to spend not more than an hour here before you catch your train. The information is displayed in Mandarin and English.

Bought a Maglev ticket at 2:30 and wanted to wait until the 430km/h train at 3pm. This museum filled the time well. Was amusing to see such a basic and low-tech museum to describe high-tech train! Most exhibits were broken, with instructions to press switches...More

Visited the museum whilst waiting for the Maglev train, which doesn't start travelling at high speed until 3 pm. Interesting displays showing how the train travels along.

Not great. But, if you have time to kill at the Maglev station, you can spend about 30 minutes here. History of Maglev trains and technologies in Germany and Japan. And, how the Maglev train works, they have samples of track etc..

There isn't really any limit to the amount of luggage, when we caught the train there was plenty of room. There is a small luggage area near the doors, otherwise your backs should fit near your seat. I think the max weight... More
