Excellent half day walking tour especially for people who know ex-residents (Jewish) of this area. The nearby area and park also merit attention and remind us of the Tenement area of NY

Easily reached by subway, this historical site provides a comprehensive and beautifully-presented education into the role Shanghai played in providing a haven for Jews fleeing Nazi persecution. Don't miss the database of immigrants: you may find a relative on the list, as I did!

I visited just after it opened and have been back since. It's a fascinating story that you almost certainly know nothing about. Probably the only "must" in Shanghai - seriously.

Dvir (our tour guide) took us on a very interesting and informative Tour of Jewish Shanghai. This included the Museum. We are not Jewish but wanted to understand Shanghai's history. You wont be disappointed.

I went on a school trip with the class and learned a lot about how the jewish immigrated into Shanghai. We saw an old jewish bible that was used during the time period. Overall, very interesting.

Before going there, I knew nothing about the immigration of Jewish refugees to Shanghai. The museum is well made and informative, and sheds light on relatively unknown stories. Recommended.

Very easy to access via the Tilanqiao metro stop only 100m down the road in the Hongkou neighbourhood. It’s very informative, well presented and the volunteer tour guides add that extra bit of information required to add to the enjoyment of the outing. Even though...More

Was unsure what to expect but this is a definitive worthy visit - not over crowded, a stunning building and a little bit off the tourist path (although near the metro line 10) - the stories and exhibitions are simply told with emotion and feeling...More

The history of holocaust is well known. The part Shanghai played changed many lives and is not well known throughout the world. During the crazy time in WWII, this place shows a bit of the bright side of mankind.

History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without
taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
