Easy access (by fingerprint, for a foreigner, otherwise ID card for Chinese citizens), no fee. The museum is located on a small street closed to the traffic, within minutes of walking to Xintiandi area or subway stations. Important landmark in the Chinese history, it lets...More

Very nice building and well-organized. Relatively easy to get in (no need for passport - they only scan your finger print) and a lot to see

If you have a chance visit nearby do drop by this free admission museum and really learn how the most important part of China formed. There is x ray screen at entrance and would not get queue up too long.

If you can get past the unsubtle state propaganda (as Comrade Xi Jinping said...) it's a pretty interesting insight into the history of modern Chinese history (or at least how the current regimes wants to present it!). Best of all.. it's free!! Try not to...More

The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a
carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled
with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area
below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most
fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can
afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and
