Adapted from a post on my blog “Shanghai virtually painted by Tan Choon Hong”. The Shanghai Auto Museum is located on the outskirts of the city in the Shanghai Anting International Automobile City. Covering a planned area of over 3 million sq m the auto township is an integrated “live, work, play” development offering manufacturing, R&D, education, expositions and trading... More

Best reached from line 11 Antling station. This modern museum has 3 floors of cars on view all in beautiful condition though I'm unsure if all actually work. It takes a good hour to reach the museum from city centre Shanghai and of course closes Monday's. It would be a good idea if more museums opened Monday's to allow more... More

Huge estate with fair amount of historic cars. I did expect more interms of quality and interaction but somehow was let down despite travelling approx 26km outside of Shanghai. 60rmb for an adult entry ticket. If you are coming all thr way here just for this, you can give it a pass unless its bundled with other visits.

About an hour's drive from downtown Shanghai, the museum was an eye-opener. Make sure to rent the audio guide (you need to pay the rent, and also leave a cash deposit that will be refunded on return). Well-laid out, over 3 floors, with a range of (mainly) American cars. The history and evolution are well charted, the audio guides at... More

If you are not used to Shanghai/China travelling make sure that you know exactly how to get there. It looks that it is right at subway 11 exit, but it is not true, it is still like 2km away from the station. If you do not speak Chinese it is difficult to get correct way to the museum. You can...

A bit out of the way from Shanghai city and quite a long walk from the subway station, but nevertheless a worthwhile visit if you (or your kids) love cars and have at least 1/2 a day to spare, since just a one way trip would require about 2 hours. First of all, check out the official website for a... More

I have been to a number of motor museums in many countries and all are more or less the same. The content is what excites you. But this one is very different. Perhaps I expected some older Chinese vehicles through local history and it does have this but so much more. The vehicles on display are in fantastic condition and... More

This museum is worth a trip if you can bundle it with a visit to other sites in the area such as the park mentioned by one other reviewer because it is a haul from downtown Shanghai (about 1 hour on subway line 11). There are many cars to see, but certainly not over 100 and more like 50-70. Aside... More

We had a wonderful Sunday afternoon in June visiting the Shanghai Auto Museum together with friends. The museum is a must for all automotive fans and at the same time interesting for kids getting an insight into the last 100 years plus of automobile development. The museum is presenting a great selection of rare oldtimers and offers quite a lot... More
