Shànghǎi History Museum information
The entire family will enjoy this informative museum with a fun presentation on old Shànghǎi. Learn how the city prospered on the back of the cotton trade and junk transportation, when it was known as ‘Little Sūzhōu’. Life-sized models of traditional shops are staffed by realistic waxworks, amid a wealth of historical detail, including a boundary stone from the International Settlement and one of the bronze lions that originally guarded the entrance to the HSBC bank on the Bund.
Some exhibits are hands-on or accompanied by creative video presentations. The city’s transport history gets a look-in, where you can size up an antique bus, an old wheelbarrow taxi and an ornate sedan chair.
