Much of what you see in Shanghai is relatively new compared to, say, Beijing, but it is no less fascinating. The museum does a good job of recreating colonial-era Shanghai and presents events through a Chinese prism. The displays are a bit amateurish and the...More

Being in this museum is like taking a trip back to Shanghai of the past (specifically the time of the turn of the last century like the late 1800's & the early 1900's) which is "quite brilliantly" displayed by means of "life-sized & life-like" wax...More

When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline,
it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are

road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic
bars fill the highrises around the area. As is
characteristic of a world-class financial business
district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can

I cannot really say but would advise that you ask the museum if they provide wheel chairs. I can only confirm that the place is wheel chair friendly. I am really sorry for not being able to assist in this matter.
