I would say that this museum is a tier below those I've been to in DC and I mean that in a good way. The museum even had exhibits where you could touch live animals but does were limited to certain time slots. The visit...More
We didn't even go inside the museum. The large park and sculpture garden outside is what caught our attention. It is extraordinarily well laid out and designed. Sculptors from around the world are represented with a style for everyone. Not heavily travelled, even during "National...More
If this museum was good, we could barely see it for tourists, all of whom seemed to be Chinese. Good on them, but after queuing for at least 30 minutes to buy tickets, and another 15 minutes inside to approach the first exhibits (and nowhere,...More
We quite enjoyed the first hour here but then it got super crowded, which was a bit of an issue, since we had to get past hordes of people to find our way out. Avoid weekends and public holidays for sure.

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same
quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
