Foursquare Tips

  • Though much of the centre can be skipped, the enormous scale model of the city on the third floor is the main reason to come here. The sheer scale of it all is worth the 30RMB entrance fee alone.
  • It's equally disturbing and amazing how the period from the late 40's until the 90's is left out and merely referred to as "modernization"...
  • The huge plastic on 3rd floor deserves the ticket price
  • Great museum to find out about the history of shanghai. Well located and easy access. 30 rmb to get it but you can also combine other sights with your ticket. A must see.
  • If you want to understand the pace of China's urbanization, you must visit this museum. The huge detailed model of the city is really impressive. Excellent place for first visit to Shanghai.
  • !!
  • I would not recommend this if you had limited time in Shanghai - the 3rd floor is interesting (gigantic city model) but the rest is not that interesting
  • Come see a 3D model of the whole city... try to predict where the next elevated road will be, buy a small house there and become a Jillionaire when the government needs it!
  • Considering the past of Shanghai and the number of influences from half way across the world, this museum lacks of a proper explanation of all the styles and ages in the citys amazing history.
  • Simply a must to understand how a small fishing village became one of the TOP metropolis in the world! great space on 6 multiple floors, a vast scale model of the entire urban area, 3D rooms & more
  • Interesting museum, so relevant information.
  • Great place to discover Shanghai. 360 panorama is cool
  • The only one interesting thing in this museum is a scale model of the city. If you want to understand the real size of SH - you must see it. Don't pay for audio guide - nothing interesting
  • Interesting exhibition. The model of Shanghai 2020 is overwhelming but raises a lot of questions as it means that the remaining parts of the old quarters will be flattened.
  • If you want to know a Chinese city never trust the urban planning exhibition museum. The model is nothing except the scale. Glass faade is covered with curtains. Failed architecture & slipshod show.
  • Too much history lessons about Shanghai that might not be interesting for a tourist. But it's worth the visit.
  • Not worth the ticket price. Small museum with not much in there. The most impressive piece is the replica of the city.
  • Good price for some history on urban development of Shanghai and future projects, nice mockup of the city and on top floor you get a nice 360 view of the city and park around.
  • At the museum, you could visit the city scale model at third floor. Here you can discover the past and the future of Shanghai and also learn things about the city.
  • One of the most interesting places in the world , . !
