this place was excellent. A series of warehouses filled with contemporary ART and artist studios. I LOVED this place. If you like art go here. Affordable collectible pieces and great for the soul. An excellent way to spend half a day in Shanghai

A collection of galleries with a few painters studios dotted about. Slightly off the beaten track. The high prices of the artworks exhibited will mean it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

Not a traditional site. You'll find both graffiti, modern art, and a little bit of traditional art in this area of converted industrial buildings. It's a fun spot. We also purchased a few cool souvenirs.

at least on the day I was there. There appear to be more vacant spaces than galleries. In addition, I went on a Friday afternoon and the vast majority of of the few galleries they have were closed. It looks like the area is in...More

As others have said, yes. It's about 10-15 minutes from the Central Train Station. It's a nice walk over the Suzhou river.
