SHANGHAI MUSEUM 上海博物馆
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

The Earth has corners, the sky is round—this ancient Chinese concept is reflected in the design of the Shanghai Museum, with its angular base and circular roof, completed in 1996. In a form reminiscent of a giant bronze vessel, the museum is located at People’s Square and belongs, with its considerable collection of classical Chinese art, on the list of must-visit places in Shanghai. It’s recommendable to rent an audio guide, which can lead you to the highlights of the eleven galleries in total.
