Not really a museum as such, more a series of waxwork tableaux of life in Shanghai in former times. Quite interesting but the displays looked rather dusty.

Honestly I don’t know how this museum only has 19 reviews. It’s a great museum and the best part is that it’s free. Also gave me something to do during the typhoon. They’re constantly expanding with more artifacts and whatnot. Pretty cool stuff

We heard about this free museum about the history of Shanghai and made sure to check it out. It's really pretty big, on several floors, and has the history of shanghai back thousands of years to current. There are lots of scenes representing people doing different activities
