Shànghǎi Post Museum information
It may sound like a yawner, but this is actually a pretty good museum, where you can learn about postal history in imperial China, tap your foot to China's official postal hymn, Song of the Mail Swan Geese, and view rare pre- and post-Liberation stamps (1888–1978). It's located in a magnificent 1924 post office, with panoramic views from the rooftop garden.
