Very pleasant. Newly renovated. Not suitable for young kids, lack of interactivity and designed for teenagers and above who enjoys history. Conveniently located near an mtr station. The narrative was simple to follow and clear. Language in English was excellent. Overall pleased with the experience. I spent about 1.5hr inside.

We really enjoyed the new museum and their entire collection. Mainly personal stories and lots of history to explore in the multitude of rooms.

There is a lot to learn here about a part of history that is virtually unknown to the uninformed.

Very close to the metro and inexpensive to visit.

A really wonderfully designed museum with details and stories in English & Chinese. I loved the stories from the refugees although they were mostly sad. It was great to be able to learn so much more about Shanghai’s generosity. Line 12 Tilanqiao metro station takes you straight to the museum and interesting surroundings.

Loved the improved and expanded museum. So much more to see and read about the Jews in Shanghai. Well worth a visit - COVID restrictions are in place e.g. mask, health code etc

The history of this neighborhood is impressive: our tour guide told us about the three waves of Jewish refugees that were housed in this neighborhood of Shanghai where the local Chinese neighbors helped to feed them.

This museum is worth visiting. This is more than an important memorial to the Holocaust. It is also a testament to hope amidst terror. By visiting you will also learn about a unique moment in Shanghai’s history. This museum is a reminder that shanghai has a history as a leading international city. The exhibits in the museum are professionally curated and informative. The wall outside with names of refugees who were able to escape the holocaust is touching. And the preserved building in the midst of modern shanghai towers shows how much shanghai has developed.

This museum provide a great deal of knowledge of the Jewish community and the Shanghai community that accepted them and saved them from the Holocaust. Meaningful. Educational.

This is a bit of a haven in a busy area of Shanghai where you can learn about the incredible story of how Jewish refugees were sheltered in the 1930s

I decided to visit this museum as I had a family friend who was a Jewish refugee in WWII. It was lovely to see a part of Chinese history that many are not aware of, that China was one of the few countries willing to take in Jewish refugees in the dark days of the 30s. A little off the beaten track, but not too difficult and there is a bonus temple around the corner.
