About this place

The outside appearance of the museum is something to behold. With a square base and round top, it is said to represent the ancient Chinese idea of a circular heaven and square land. And with that as your introduction, the museum weaves you around 11 different categories of Chinese art including paintings, calligraphy, seals, coins, bronze, ceramics, sculpture, jade, furniture and (my personal favorite) minority nationalities. So much of Chinese culture is still rooted in its ancient language, art and history and this museum, which so effortlessly comprises them all, is a “must do” for the ardent China-loving traveller.
Located at Peoples Square (人民广场), Shanghai’s main hub of politics and traffic (!), the museum is easy to get to. Take metro line 1 or 2 to People’s Square station or take a taxi to “Renmin Guangchang”.

<p>The best museum in Shanghai for Ceremic , Bronze, and Jade.</p>
We had a lot of fun in Shanghai!
<p>The Shanghai Museum is great. We spent the better part of the day there going through all the exhibition halls-the best part is there is actually English explanations that make sense. <br /> Afterward we went down the Nanjing Road pedestrian street and checked out the small restaurants that branch from it.Walking down the Bund in the evening was a great way to end the day.</p>
