Shanghai (pron. [ʃaŋˈɡai]; in cinese 上海S, ShànghǎiP [ʂaŋˈxai], abbreviazione 沪 o 申, Hù o Shēn; in italiano anche Sciangai), situata sul fiume Huangpu presso il delta del Fiume Azzurro, è la seconda città più popolata della Cina, dopo Chongqing e anche la seconda del mondo, con una popolazione di oltre 29 milioni di abitanti; è la seconda municipalità autonoma del Paese dopo Chongqing ed è una delle quattro città municipalità della Cina a godere dello status di provincia.
In cinese Shànghǎi è abbreviata in Hù (滬T, 沪S) e Shēn (申S); le due sillabe shàng e hǎi significano letteralmente «sul mare» o anche «verso il mare». L'interpretazione è che la città originariamente fosse situata sul mare oppure, secondo i locali, fosse il punto più alto in cui arrivava il mare.

If you have been in China for a long -period of time or are familiar with exhibitions of Chinese artifacts etc, I would not recommend this museum. It is very good but it is also nothing exceptional. For people who enjoy museums, especially traveling from Europe who may be familiar with these types of displays etc, there is nothing new to see here. I will say that the surrounding area is well worth walking around as you travel towards the people's square. Worth a visit but perhaps only go inside if there is something you are particularly interested in.

Got there about 1pm. LONG line but it moves quite quickly. Museum is interesting. So is the architecture. Getting to the museum if you are handicapped -is difficult. We ended you using the steps down and then across under the street and back up more steps. It was difficult. The gift shop looked interesting, but not enough time .... Or energy.

The collections of art are simply amazing. The floors are easy to navigate and the museum is nicely divided in sections. And: it's free! What I missed, though, is a bit of storytelling. Most signs and text read something like "this is a masterpiece of ..." and "this is considered to be top-of-art by ...", but they fail to explain to a foreigner what I am really looking at. So even though I had a good time, I learned very little.

It is an outstanding museum. It will be better when all exhibits have the international language on them. I spent 20 hours exploring this vast complex. The Russian "The Wanderers" exhibit was outstanding and I highly recommend it if you can catch it.

Loved this place. There is so much of Chinese history to see. I was fortunate to visit free because it was the opening day of the Egyptian exhibit. The surrounding areas were also nice and green.

Make sure to enter from where the Dancing Waters are! Also GO EARLY. When we left there was a HUGE line to get in. Great collection: Calligraphy; Bronzes; furniture; Jade; Coins; painting, etc. Nice gift shop with reasonable prices. I got some pearl earrings and a fun umbrella. Nice selection of English books as well. There is a cafe there but it wasn't open. Allow a couple of hours.

Nice and well organised museum. I arrived in early so no need to wait at all. Mostly government museum is free but some need id or passport to identify yourself. I love this place. 😊👍

this place is one of the popular well known museum in China, it has huge spacious exhibition area. To gain more enjoyable visiting, it would be better if the person have some prerequisite about Chinese historical background prior, this will be helpful and make a pleasant visiting trip.

Amazing 11 entrance fee galleries spread over four floors offering an artistic tour with 120,000 precious historical relics such as Chinese bronze, ceramics, paintings, furniture, calligraphy, seals, sculptures, jades, ancient coins...

Closed Mondays (except public holidays) as of January 2018 Excellent museum with a large array of Chinese artifacts dating back over a thousand years. Each exhibit is nicely laid out and there are plenty of English explanations.
