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.

The place is worth of a visit. It gives a good account of this historical moment, and can be easily combined with visits around. Not to be missed!

Events in this building shaped the modern China. Free entry. The permanent exhibition is improved from our last visit. It sets out briefly the background to the establishment of the party including the hundred years of humiliation by foreign powers. There are brief biographies of...More

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

True to its description as "Exhibition of Historical Relics Showing the Founding of the Communist Party of China", this museum provides the historic background of the founding of CPC. The life size figures of the delegates at the scene are worth the visit. The venue...More

A deeply interesting and well curated museum. Not only does the collection outline the conditions and rise in popularity of communism in China, but also the struggles facing the communist party. I was fascinated with the information of a global communist movement and how support...More

A nice little museum, but the stories behind it from our guide were far better than the museum itself. Skip unless you have a compelling reason.

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

provides the area with green space and is also home to
