This was my first time at a Madame Tussaud's museum so I don't have anything to compare it too. They have a variety of exhibit halls featuring both Chinese and foreign people. I enjoyed the historical figures and was able to take a lot of photos since the Chinese visitors loved the Chinese and Korean pop stars. Even though it... More

This is a great museum if you have not had a chance to see the one in London . A good opportunity to have your photos taken with celebrities . I had my photo taken with ex president Obama . Buy a combined ticket for this museum and the Changfeng Park and SAVE .

This is a somewhat locally oriented museum. It has Chinese celebrities that few foreigners have heard of. That is why i found it interesting. The western figures are the super famous-Elvis, John Glenn. I could not help but notice i was taller than all the Chinese and shorter than the great majority of westerners. Elvis was below MT's usual standards.

It's 190 元. They have packages for photos. It's a good way to spend the afternoon if you want to spend the money. Not very big but a good mix of famous people.

Madame Tussauds Shanghai a short walk along Nanjing Xi Lu (Nanjing West Road) from 人民广场 (people's square) station so easy to get to. You take a glass lift up - it's connected to a shopping centre. As a clueless foreigner unaware of Chinese films and music there are lots of Chinese stars that I just did not know that locals... More

Getting there: Take Exit 7 from the People's Square Subway station. Tickets: You can purchase the tickets online at the website or on the spot. Because of the steep price of RMB 190 for adults the place is not very crowded as most of the other places in China. If you are sure about you plans book online as that... More

Staying in People’s Square

Neighbourhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
