The museum was ok and worth checking out if you are in the area. We spent half an hour in here and felt we saw everything. The museum itself gives a brief introduction to how transportation developed and how maglev systems were tested and improved upon in English and Chinese. The museum is a little dated with some features that don't work.

The museum can be found at Longyang Station below the actual maglev that goes to Pudong International Airport. The museum is free to enter and when we went we had to write down our names and show the green arrows.

Museum definitely nitely a bit dated. Only 4 of 5 sections open and some exhibits no longer functioning. Still worth 10-15 min. stop on 1st floor before buying ticket on 2nd floor. If one-way for flight out, show boarding pass to get ticket for discounted 40 RMB VS. 50 RMB. Fun, fast ride. Terminal was not busy. 9-11:30 am train reaches highest speed; 430 km/h.

Small museum under the Maglev station at Longyang Lu. Free to enter and interesting displays on Maglev history and construction.

I enjoyed visiting the Shanghai Maglev Museum in PuDong. I think it is a really fun place, because it is fascinating in many ways.

My favorite part of the visit was riding on the maglev, because there is lots and lots of facts about the maglev trains, such as what country they are from, what it does and how it works.

We learned that under the Maglev is magnet. The Maglev train is the fastest train in the world and also there are Maglev in Japan, Germany and Switzerland.

They do little /nothing to highlight where this is. We had to ask before we could find it.

Well worth it though. A good, straightforward explanation of the systems and the science behind it.

If you do Maglev you must do this

Is free

The museum is at the ground floor level of the Maglev train station - at Longyang. There was no one in the museum when we went there and I believe that many may not be aware of the museum. It is a very small museum but has some interesting information about Maglev and other high speed trains. The engineering information is provided in easy to read and follow, and in English. The museum provides greater perspective to people who want to enjoy the Maglev.

A very informative museum. It explains the engineering behind the train and how it works. It doesnt take long and worth going through it if you are going to enjoy the train trip.

We were very impressed by this free museum of the Maglev transportation system. There is plenty of explanations, video and a really good model of the track layout of the system from Longyang Road to Pudong airport. As the Maglev is the fastest train in the world, the museum is worth spending some time in. You will be able to see the train on its track right outside the museum.

We visited with wendy Wu tours, before boarding maglev train. Quite interesting visit, though some of the English translations were incorrect. (eg "The train works by magnetic attraction", instead of repulsion.

Had a ride on the maglev and visited the museum. A good experience. Buy a return and just stay on the train
