Shanghai is home to an impressive range of museums, celebrating the city’s – and all of China’s – historical, artistic and technological triumphs.
Free to the public, the Shanghai Museum is a must-visit for anyone interested in the city’s cultural history. Its galleries showcase incredible artefacts of Chinese art throughout history, including ancient bronze metalwork, ceramics and Chinese sculpture. Recent special exhibitions have included The Ferryman of Ink: the calligraphy and painting of famed artist Dong Qichang and Crossroad: the belief and art of the Kushan Dynasty. New exhibits are launched monthly.
