The displays are well done and engaging for all ages. I especially liked the walk through the streets of Shanghai over the decades, and the display of transportation modes, from a wheelbarrow to a Buick Regal. Save money and don't take the elevator trip in...More

Just for the record, I am talking here about the Shanghai History Museum in the Oriental Pearl Tower, and not the Shanghai Museum in People's Square. There seems to be some confusion in the reviews about this. The Shanghai Museum is a must-see, whereas the...More

Situated at the base of the Opel Tower, this is a very interesting museum to learn how Shanghai was 'discovered', developed and form to the vibrant city it is today. The models are a tad dated (and smelly!) but it is all very interesting and...More

This museum, located in the base of the Oriental Tower, is truly a delight. It’s a great museum of Shanghai’s history told not through endless reading but though wax figures, props and other objects. It makes learning fun.

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

When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline,
it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are
speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are
located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring
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.
