This is a very informative museum. Containing amazing historical information. It doesn't cost much to get in. You can even go into soong Ching lings home and see what it looked like when she lived there which is amazing. I learnt a lot from this.

Great hour stop between fuxing park and other attractions in the French Concession. Good primary source materials on a fascinating man, who died before his full legacy was realized. Also good primary materials on his famous wife.

Unlike many places in China this appears to be a true historical site and not a replica. Having said that, most of the 'artifacts' have been removed, leaving rooms with furniture but books, clothes, ornaments and other items missing. You can see the rooms of...More

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French
Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that
is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While
