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.

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

I found the staff here very helpful and was provided with a helpful information leaflet to guide me around the various exhibits. It wasn't where I was expecting to find it based on my map but worth a look around if you're in the area

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

endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
