Really easy to get to, just take subway line 8 to the Art Museum station. You can't miss it once you walk up, because the building is enormous. Entry is free and you do not need to book. My favourite exhibits were on the basement...More

It's not common in the west to view this type of art, Chinese original and historical. View the development of local Chinese art in the modern age. Very impressive view into the culture and the history.

The building is terrific, when you walk out if subway and then look up you are just amazed by it. The exhibitions are cool, though all the signs are in Chinese, only a few of them are in English. Not over-crowded. And it's free, only...More

On a recent trip to Shanghai we found this great art museum. It is huge! It's an upside down pyramid! Admission was free. We started at the top, wandering through and working our way down. The artwork was fantastic, however all the signage is in...More

I must admit that I didn't actual go into the art museum because the day we went to the expo center it was closed. But I had to review this place because the building itself is a work of art. The inverted pyramid is noticed...More

Even by modern China standards, this amazing building is quite breathtaking. It's free to visit, although what's inside doesn't really impress half as much as the building itself. It's not got great access as with all public buildings, the Chinese have gone out of their...More

A visit to the Museum + surrounding former Shanghai World Expo 2010 site is very well worth your efforts. The pavilion itself is a marvellous piece of architecture with the various Art works on display world class pieces. I’d go back for certain. Expect crowds,...More

The Museum is a most impressive building with an impressive set of stairs to the entry. Once you're in (free) an escalator takes you up to the next level where the exhibitions begin. We had only very limited time and were unable to do justice...More

The initial awe generated from the impressive infrastructure of the building was marred by the lack of English explanations for a majority of the exhibits. This museum certainly seemed catered for locals with few foreign looking tourists in sight. It was free entry for us...More
