Description

The Shanghai Museum is a prominent landmark and key attraction in the city. Located at the People's Square in the Huangpu District, the Shanghai Museum was originally constructed in 1952 and showcases China's 5000 years of history in the form of ancient Chinese art. The museum features eleven galleries and three exhibition halls containing a wide range of items such as bronze, calligraphy, ceramics, ancient coins, furniture, jades, paintings, seals, sculptures and art. Over 120,000 items are on display at the museum and the museum is considered by many to be the first world-class museum of China.
