48hrs in Shanghai at end of Olympic trip - suggestions?

We will have 48hrs spare (excluding arriving in Shanghai and the day we fly home) at the end of our Olympic trip and we are looking for things to do that are particular to Shanghai. We will not need to do much shopping as that will have been done in Beijing, so that can be crossed off the list, but if there is an "experience" unique to Shanghai please can you recommend it. We are a party of two adults and a child who will have just turned 6. Thank you for your help.

Go to Yu-Yuan, it is yangzi-delta style garden you will not see in Beijing. If you like city life, then shanghai has lots of fun, if you are more like country side, go to the suburbs, there are a few "water village" near shanghai and you can even take day trip to Nanjing (the official capital of Republic of China, which is also known as Taiwan now) which is the biggest walled city in the world or HangZhou, the capital of Song Dynasty.
