“Most amazing Museum!”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

I loved the wax work! It looked so real. This is one of the best museums I've ever been to because it's so real. I loved how they did the different models and showed how life was like in Shanghai. A must go in Shanghai!

“Nice museeum”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Nice museum, displaying scenes from the different periods of Shanghai History.

The museum is not very explanatory, and I was missing a red thread through the museum explaining in more details about the history of the city. What you mainly will see is a reconstruction of e.g. a Soya shop with a caption saying something like "Soya shops were normal in the xxx dynasty", to my taste a bit more history adds something to the museum.

But certainly worth a visit if you are in the area!
