All reviews cultural revolution gift shop private collection residential building chronological order communist era modern chinese history recent history block of flats unique collection bit hard to find small museum well worth the effort historical context history lesson on display great insight
I don’t know why people say this is hard to find. There’s a sign on the street, it’s super easy to find building B, and there’s tons of signs pointing you in the right direction
Anyway it’s a great little museum. 25RMB entry fee is...More
Four of us went to see this museum the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it! It took a little while to find as it’s in the basement of an apartment building; signage (English, Chinese and French) is around and you can ask the parking lot...More
This is not a review of the museum. I am just drawing awareness to the fact that it is closed on Mondays. TripAdvisor- Please update the hours in your listing. I traveled almost 40 minutes on a Monday, only to find it closed.
It was a bit difficult to find- in the basement of an apartment building, but was certainly worth the adventure! The poster art was so interesting and rare. It really gave a new perspective on the history of China and different regimes. Would highly recommend...More
This is a whole in the wall museum with pictures, posters, pins, the "Little Red Book" and many more propaganda memorabilia. In fact, if you're lucky, you can see passports/travel documents from the 30's.
This feels like you're in someone's private poster collection - the posters themselves are salvaged from many private collections so have things like pin marks, cellotape, etc. adding to the character of a truly underrated art form. I loved it.
NOTE: They're closed on Mondays!

You're looking for 868 Hua Shan Road, which is roughly at a T-intersection with Wukang road. The numbers of the buildings are well-indicated, it's on the north side of the street. Coordinates are 31.213398, 121.438904 (if you paste these numbers into google maps, a marker shows up). The museum itself is in (what I guess is) a residential complex. Once you're at the comples, just turn to the guard station on the roadside, and they'll let you in, giving you a little business card with directions.
