This museum is really worth to visit. It is quite big and you will spend at least one hour there. There are many exhibits that shows and tells great and interesting history of Shanghai, mostly about end of XIX - beginning of XX centuries.

This is not the most famous of the museums in Shanghai, though you'd be sorry to miss it! This museum showcases more or less every aspect of the history of this dynamic metropolis, showing examples of everything from family dwellings to historical hair salons. You...More

Not a traditional history museum. This one is told through waxwork models and models of the city and other life-size artefacts, including trams and cars and mock-ups of traditional streets. For RMB35 this is a well-worthwhile place to go.

We weren’t going to go in the museum as I was tired but I’m so glad we did as we absolutely loved it. It’s fairly small but crammed with exhibits including fabulous intricate models of old Shanghai buildings complete with people inside. Our particular favourite...More

Was in town for a conference and took a day off for some history. Very interesting. There are ancient Greek coins that have been found in the Shanghai area - unbelievable. How did they get here?

Very well presented history of the growth of Shanghai. Gave you a real feel for the city as it opened it’s doors to the world and grew to the vibrant city we see today. Very well worth a visit.

We shortlisted this and were pleasantly surprised . displays were well sequenced and informative . All three of us felt the Rmb 35 fee was worth it.

Sadly the "real" Shanghai History Museum is currently without a permanent home as best as we can determine. Supposedly it was going to put into the old Shanghai Race Club building near what is now the People's Square but we weren't able to get anyone...More

When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline,
it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are
speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are
located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring
road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic
bars fill the highrises around the area. As is
characteristic of a world-class financial business
district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can

I cannot really say but would advise that you ask the museum if they provide wheel chairs. I can only confirm that the place is wheel chair friendly. I am really sorry for not being able to assist in this matter.
