All reviews wax figures the pearl life size models great museum city's history oriental tower ancient times tv tower everyday life audio guide rainy day on display worth a visit chinese culture couple of hours observation deck scenes
Situated at the base of the Opel Tower, this is a very interesting museum to learn how Shanghai was 'discovered', developed and form to the vibrant city it is today.
The models are a tad dated (and smelly!) but it is all very interesting and...More
did not even know about the museum before we returned from the tower - so did not expect much, when we noticed it. It is perfect, could stay there for another hour or more! Not too packed with exhibits, so gives you time to immerse...More
This museum, located in the base of the Oriental Tower, is truly a delight. It’s a great museum of Shanghai’s history told not through endless reading but though wax figures, props and other objects. It makes learning fun.
Located at the base of Pear Oriental Tower, the ticket costs ¥35 (no student ticket). The museum is also named as Shanghai History Museum, consist of 4 parts, each tells about a stage of development of Shanghai city. From one part to another, there are...More
On our way down from the observation deck at the Oriental Pearl Tower (see my review), we unloaded next to the entry to the museum. I'm a sucker for museums, and this one is very good!
Follow the exhibits in order, and you'll see how...More
Much of what you see in Shanghai is relatively new compared to, say, Beijing, but it is no less fascinating. The museum does a good job of recreating colonial-era Shanghai and presents events through a Chinese prism. The displays are a bit amateurish and the...More
just beneath the tower there is a beautiful museum .like the wax museum in other countries it is amazing. but I like the moving statue with sound not seen there.but totally it is one of the tourist attractions
The museum is in the basement of the Pearl Tower, as we already saw the view from our hotel room we skipped the Tower trip itself and went to the museum on the recommendation of a local and we were glad we did.There are life...More
Love the idea on how they create this. While entering the second floor. Big house was made and you feel that you enter that house or that establishment. The scent of what they sell and the audio was amazing. It feels like i was there...More
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can
be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
I cannot really say but would advise that you ask the museum if they provide wheel chairs. I can only confirm that the place is wheel chair friendly. I am really sorry for not being able to assist in this matter.
