A must visit while in Shanghai
Jul 2021 • Couples
We really enjoyed the new museum and their entire collection. Mainly personal stories and lots of history to explore in the multitude of rooms.

There is a lot to learn here about a part of history that is virtually unknown to the uninformed.

Very close to the metro and inexpensive to visit.

Wonderful history!

A really wonderfully designed museum with details and stories in English & Chinese. I loved the stories from the refugees although they were mostly sad. It was great to be able to learn so much more about Shanghai’s generosity. Line 12 Tilanqiao metro station takes you straight to the museum and interesting surroundings.

Tour the Neighborhood, Too
Jan 2021
The history of this neighborhood is impressive: our tour guide told us about the three waves of Jewish refugees that were housed in this neighborhood of Shanghai where the local Chinese neighbors helped to feed them.

Must-see museum in China
Dec 2020 • Family
This museum is worth visiting. This is more than an important memorial to the Holocaust. It is also a testament to hope amidst terror. By visiting you will also learn about a unique moment in Shanghai’s history. This museum is a reminder that shanghai has a history as a leading international city. The exhibits in the museum are professionally curated and informative. The wall outside with names of refugees who were able to escape the holocaust is touching. And the preserved building in the midst of modern shanghai towers shows how much shanghai has developed.

A story of hope in the Jewish diaspora
Dec 2019
This is a bit of a haven in a busy area of Shanghai where you can learn about the incredible story of how Jewish refugees were sheltered in the 1930s

Small but very well put together museum
Jan 2020
I decided to visit this museum as I had a family friend who was a Jewish refugee in WWII. It was lovely to see a part of Chinese history that many are not aware of, that China was one of the few countries willing to take in Jewish refugees in the dark days of the 30s. A little off the beaten track, but not too difficult and there is a bonus temple around the corner.

A quiet, authentic museum in the original buildings which housed a synagogue, meeting hall and tavern for jewish refugees rescued by Shanghai citizens. Map of the surrounding area gives visitors a chance to also explore the neighborhood and see firsthand how the Jews lived side by side with the Chinese during WWII. Fascinating museum.
