This museum documents an important period of modern Chinese history and is truly worth a visit. The narrative explains: "... most of the posters were destroyed due to different political changes in the past years". However, a collection of some 6000 pieces has been amassed.
Conditions of entry into some Shanghai museums are currently unclear or unpredictable. For this place, however, no prior reservation is necessary (November 2022), it is open Tues-Sun, 10:00-17:00. An entrance fee of Y25 is payable at the door.
It is a few minutes' walk from the Jing'An temple - continue westwards down Nanjing West until you come to the major road that bears the Yan'An viaduct. Turn right and follow the viaduct westwards for a few blocks, until you arrive at No. 726 (a tall office/apartment block). The guards on the door will let you in and show you towards the lifts that you will take to the 7th floor; then go to room K. You can also come at it from Jiangsu metro station (line 2), walk south to Yan'An Xi Road and turn left.
There is a gift shop which does not sell the usual kitschy junk but, inter alia, reproductions of the posters.
