Comprehensive film museum focusing on early Chinese film history. Offers some general (technical) movie background, but one should bring interest in Chinese film. Good English audio guide available.

We revisited the museum recently and did not regret it. This museum is a good destination for a rainy afternoon with plenty of interactive installations and impressive exhibits. You don't have to be a film enthusiast to enjoy. They also have a small Starbucks in...More

This is a huge space, several floors of glossy animated exhibits, screens and noise which many visitors will love. English translations for most exhibit descriptions. However for those interested in the technical detail this was a frustrating visit. An impressive selection of period movie projectors,...More

Not a dull moment (or exhibit) in this museum. You can easily spend a day here (as did we), all for about $10 U.S., and free for seniors. 99% of the exhibits, displays and even film excerpts have both Chinese and English captions/explanations. Convenient to...More

It appears as though no expense has been spared with this new museum, which has touch screens by the dozen, a number of interactive games, and even cabinets with drawers to pull out. It gives a lot of information about many of the important figures...More

Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and
entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of
residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle
pockets that have their own unique attractions. The
schools have formed pockets of international
communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang.
Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have
built up over the years to cater to these communities.
