This is worth an hour or so of your time to wander through the exhibits and see how the city of Shanghai developed over the years. Great to see some of the pictures of the old city and "then" and "now" pictures. On the fourth floor is a full model of the current city of Shanghai - simply amazing. The... More

The model of Shanghai is great if you're slightly familiar with the city. Great the see the sky scrapers dominate the city and you can pick out the areas you've visited. Nice way to spend the afternoon and learn more about shanghais ever growing urban zones.

If you're a city geek and love the idea of seeing what plans China has for the city and love the idea of seeing its history...

The model of the city of Shanghai is amazing and constantly updated. It is shown to you in a simulated 24 hour sequence so you can imagine the city in daylight and night. There is also many floors that share city history and cultural information with models.

Went hear on a whim as I was walking by. Really neat scale model of Shanghai on one of the floors that takes up an entire floor. Also good to see old pictures of Shanghai as its changed over time.

Shanghai changed my preconceptions of China. And this was the best place to learn of this interesting city's history, the city planners' issues and how they solved the various issues of a city with such a huge population. The exhibits are well-designed and pretty cool, especially the model of the city. Must catch views of People's Square from the top... More

This excellent exhibition shows the planning of one of the worlds fastest growing cities. Apart from the scaled model of the city, there are displays describing moments in history, the shikumen housing and the colonial era. There is also a fantastic 3D fly through the city which was also a highlight.

Staying in People’s Square

Neighbourhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
