It was very informational and I learned a lot about the Jewish history of Shanghai. A small museum, so plan about an hour to hour and half. The exhibits are well done and something to engage the kids as well.

The Jewish area of Shanghai is under a progressive demolition, to give space to new modern tall buildings. This is going to be the only place where that part of the history can be seen and remembered by the visitors. Not many people know about...More

The first element that I noticed when I came to the museum was the old-ashioned architectures around the bounding wall. The sorrel buildings seemed to be painted long ago, since part of the dark red paint had fell of, revealing the grey concrete wall inside....More

History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without
taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
