Shànghǎi Art Museum information
This museum is located within the former British racecourse club building next to People’s Park. Refreshingly cool in summer, the interior galleries are suited to appreciating art, displayed in well-illuminated alcoves and with a voluminous sense of space. It’s also worth noting the ceiling details and other period features original to the 1933 building. Unfortunately, the quality of the exhibitions is inconsistent. English captions are sporadic at best.
