simply an amazing exhibition of a neighborhood in Shanghai on its own taking the initiative to accept Jewish refugees and enable these refugees to build a community and practice their religion.

This was a great little museum telling how China opened its arms to Jewish refugees when the world turned its back on the Jews. Good materials and presentation. Worth the visit.

We had not even heard of this and we have been to Shanghai 4-5 times. We went on the Metro and it was convenient. Only 20 RMB for adults and very interesting. It is "renovated" in the Chinese sense of being rebuilt. Very interesting exhibits...More

A very interesting small museum attached to the Ohel Moishe synagogue. The exhibits and short film give a excellent history of an interesting aspect of Shanghai's history.

History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without
taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
