It's easy to forget China's past in this city; this place is a direct link and reminder of that past! One of the most impressive stops we made while in Shanghai!!

Very small, private collection but a rare look at Chinese cultural history. Wish I had bought a couple of the irreplaceable original posters. Great little collection. Off the beaten path.

Defiantly worth a visit. Very interesting to see the propaganda over the years and how China portrayed things to their people.

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

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!

Great place to learn more about a different side of Shanghai. It's a bit difficult to find so bring the address in Mandarin. We've spend about an hour in this museum.
