I loved this little art museum. So close to the Bund and not far from Henan Road, which in turn, means that this little gem is only around 10 minutes walk from Nanjing Road. I arrived at 10am on a Sunday and was really happy...More

A contemporary art exhibition space is always only going to be as good as the current exhibition and it's not my intention to rate the art here, but more the venue. We saw Song Dong's 'I don't know the mandate of heaven', which was a...More

Beautiful building, I saw the solo exhibition of fellow Belgian Francis Alÿs here and enjoyed both the works of art and the architecture of the building.

Ivé seen some very good exhibitions here - the Song Dong exhibition last year was exceptional. The curation is first-rate. It's a small museum, so they can really focus on one artist or theme quite well. Do review the web site though. The museum often...More

Trully a waste of time. The exhibition Systems has nothing to tell share or point out, just stupid colourful games for millenial children interested of show and of the spectacle side only. No beauty, no message, no art. I would honestly suspect the artist of...More

Have been there a few times and never disappointed. There is a small shop on ground floor, exhibitions on next floors and a cafe/library on top where you can chill and enjoy some books. You might need to check on the exhibition before as sometime...More

Absolute scam. Paid 50RMB each to see nothing but white walls. Asked for a refund but was refused. Explanation was that the empty space was a form of expression... are you kidding me? This place should be avoided at all costs.

This was the first time I hear about this museum thanks to the recommendation of some friends and it was an absolute delight. Beautiful building and the Song Dong exhibition was really amazing. Great place for all contemporary art lovers.

The 1930s heritage Art Deco building in the historic Rockbund district very close to the famous Bund is lovely for those who like this period of architecture (I do!). I am not a fan of contemporary art and so it very much depend on one's...More

A building with a history! Often changing exhibitions for art lovers, and sometimes the exhibition is not worth, but the neighborhood is very inspiring.

Having had high expectations with this venue being near the Bund and continually praised in Time Out Shanghai, I was hugely disappointed. It was very small and hosted a strange exhibition. Unfortunately one of the main art pieces on the whole 3rd floor was completely...More

The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the
world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous
waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts
monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai
International Settlement run by the British and
Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has
endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
