Lonely Planet review

Most of the pavilions at the site of the 2010 World Expo were designed as temporary structures and were dismantled shortly after the event's completion. However, at least five structures on the Pǔdōng side will remain standing and continue to host exhibits and events, including the iconic China Pavilion (中国国家馆; Zhōngguó Guójiā Guǎn), the Expo Center (世博中心; Shìbó Zhōngxīn) and the Cultural Center (世博文化中心; Shìbó Wénhuà Zhōngxīn).

Some 4000 Expo highlights will be on display at the Expo Museum (世博博物馆; Shìbó Bówùguǎn), which is slated to open on the Pǔxī side (across the river from Pǔdōng) in 2012.
