Love the idea on how they create this. While entering the second floor. Big house was made and you feel that you enter that house or that establishment. The scent of what they sell and the audio was amazing. It feels like i was there...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

We did the quick walk through after the pearl tower- designed like a disney attraction, once you start you need to go all the way through- hard to exit once you start. However, the walk through take about 30 minutes and there are enjoyable scenes...More

Rather than the usual boring text saturated history museum this is a unique cameo based walking tour with many recreated scenes with life-like models and scenes. A must if you visit the Shanghai or Pearl Towers (it is is this tower's basment). Admission is 35...More

Lujiazui
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.
