The science and tech museum has its own metro station which hosts the market where you can buy many 'branded' goods. Very interesting and interactive. Good attraction for families.

Nice place, if you are with child 5 -15 year. Try to reach before 1000 am so u get entire day else plan other day. There was ticket 60 RMB per adult, worth only if u are spending a day. There is big shopping complex in front basement. Enjoy with good bargaining skills.

Overall this would be an enjoyable place for young children up to the age of 10 but older kids and adults will find it (very)dated and lacking in what could be a real science and technology museum. Many of the displays are hands on but the technology they demonstrate is a decade out of date. PROs - Multiple floors with... More

Upon arrival you see all the massive architecture and posters. But do not let those fool you. Having been to quite a few museums like that in Asia and Europe, I was disappointed,to say the very least. First of all, it is lack of interactive stands that explain the work of processes. Those are replaced with screens that are pouring... More

This museum has some good exhibits and much information in English. It's interesting seeing information on Chinese technology. The robotics exhibition and geology exhibition are particularly interesting. Some parts of the museum could do with updating, but good for a couple of hours on a rainy day.

We live in Shanghai, quite close to the Science and Tech museum. It’s aimed at young kids and is a great place to take our 2.5 year old. Very regularly, you'll see big groups of primary school kids being taken there for school projects and excursions which gives you the idea of the target audience. The ticket price is a... More

Lots to see and do for the family. There are numerous interactive items for the children to experience. Admission is also reasonably price. But movie tickets needs to be purchased separately. I would recommend you buy the movie tickets as you walk through the exhibits, as some may spend more time in some areas. One area for improvement : Food... More

The museum is located near a metro station, making it easy to travel. The ticket price is rather expensive. In the museum, the animals exhibits looks realistic and the "rain forest" is realistic too. Though the information is not in depth and it mainly targets young children. For the other exhibits, it is mainly targeted for young children, and anyone... More

Spent an afternoon in this place which was nearly empty so stall holders seemed desperate for a sale. Managed to buy shoes; ladies and sports shoes for around $10. Had a pair of bifocal glasses made from prescription for $50 in about 30 minutes. Also bought beautiful leather satchel for $24. Haggle hard as the starting prices are ridiculous. I... More

Staying in Century Park

Neighbourhood Profile
Century Park
Shanghai residents see Pudong’s suburbs as the place that grown-ups retreat to when they’re ready to settle down and stop living in the cramped confines of a refurbished lanehouse. The areas around Century Park are some of the most desirable as they are in close proximity to the Metro Lines, granting easy access to the heart of Puxi. The park itself is a huge draw, it’s one of Shanghai’s biggest and there are sports fields tucked into one of its corners, but five-star hotels, museums and great malls make life in the Century Park area easy for the homesick foreigner. And if living in a Western bubble in China isn’t your thing, there is plenty of local flavor to be had in between the major development. Some of Lujiazui’s futurism can also be seen in buildings and sculptures throughout the neighborhood as well.
