From the name you imagine a place containing insects, instead there is a large array of animals in tiny little cadges. Not recommended to anyone who cares about animals, seeing a ferret in a hamster cage was heartbreaking. A huge turtle in a fish tank,...More

We live in Shanghai and this is an inexpensive place to take our toddler for a day trip. The front entrance is shabby and odd plastic cut-outs of Bugs Bunny and Pepe le Pew are a very strange way of introducing guests to a place...More

Situated by the River, this is a nice little place to visit - even though it was inside. You can not always get what you want so you just gotta make do. I feel the place was well laid out, and all the exhibits were...More

It was good for education for my 6 years old daughter. She enjoyed it very much, much more than adult. When I visited Shanghai, it was rainy and foggy day, so this was one of the good place to visit.

This place is right next to the Aquarium and for 60RMB, I thought I would take a look. What a mistake. I should have guessed something was not right when I saw Daffy Duck, Pepy Le Pew and Bugs Bunny figures in the forecourt that...More

I wish I had consulted Trip Advisor before visiting this attraction. It is horrible. Small cages for the turtles. Smelly and unclean. We couldn't get out fast enough. Save your money and go to the aquarium or the Shanghai circus instead.

It is a far cry from the quality of Oceanarium, although located almost next door to it. There is nothing unique and nothing displayed in a inviting way. It is not educating in a way one would expect.

Well, I agree with the previous comments about how much of a horror show these poor animals are kept in. We stupidly decided to go because we thought it was more of a museum place about insects. As soon as we saw the raccoon at...More

When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline,
it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are
speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are
located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring
road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic
bars fill the highrises around the area. As is
characteristic of a world-class financial business
district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can
