Very spacious, affordable at just 30rmb for adults and kids under 1.3m free. Many dinosaurs in skeleton and animatronic form, many taxidermied animals of the past, a good collection of minerals and rocks, and ecology of shanghai. It was empty on a Friday morning. The sculpture garden outside is a big plus for little kids. Only negative is I think most of the items except the rocks are replicas, including the stuffed animals but maybe it's not bad since those animals are endangered or extinct. We did have to buy our tickets on wechat, show health code and passports to enter as foreigners.

Four floors of beautifully arranged creativity and loads of information. There are cafes and souvenir shops too. Its park outside is gigantic and very well maintained. A lovely visit indeed.

Very large museum. Almost overwhelming. Well laid out. Spacious. Very clean and well maintained. Plenty of restrooms and areas to sit down & rest. Easily accessible location. Something for everyone. We spent about 4 hours here & did not see everything. If possible, we recommend going on a week day as holidays & weekends can be a little busy. Worth your time even if you only go thru a few sections. Younger children maybe bored. The outside area around the building lovely space to sit and have a snack or to people watch. There are lockers available at the front door for temporary storage.

I wasn’t expecting that much, but this place is full of so many interesting things to see, that after some time I was already tired of walking. It’s incredible, I really liked it! The ticket was only 30rmb, which I was very surprised about it.
I just wish people were not that loud, so the visit could have been more pleasant.

Yes I am a nerd when it comes to natural history! I spent about 5 hours at this amazing museum!

Being here makes me feel like I’m a kid running wild in a candy store that has toys and filled with all you can eat chocolates! And during our trip here, the museum had also unveiled a new exhibit. The polar bear. An amazing specimen. I was soo amazed and focus and I totally did not get a lot of shots. Will I come back again, YES!

Absolutely loved going to this museum with my little one. The exhibitions are displayed well, it really makes the animal come to life. The Dinosaur is not to be missed. Although I would like to see more areas for resting and more crowd control, especially if you have little ones trying to get into an elevator. Will not suggest going any time in the summer, and avoid weekends.

Living in Shanghai with a child this is one of the places they will learn about nature and it’s fun. This is one of the most interesting Natural History museums I have visited, because there is something for every member of family.

Tickets
Cost in 30 rmb
Children under 1.3 m are free.
Senior 65v + 25 rmb

Due corona you must show your the health qr code with passport and respite your number before being allowed to buy a ticket.

You must wear a mask the whole time

Restaurants
They are not open

Now there are less visitors, but highly suggest the visit because the places are clean and the staff can focus answering you.

Accessibility: COnvenient from METRO just 10min ault base work.
Enter: You may guess, Shanaghai is big city, so everywhere crowed with People
Infrastructure: If avoide peak season or time, you can find some public seat for short rest.
Cost: Tickets are little bit high but discount poilcy for students , food are expensive
Public etiquette: You can guess.....
