Shanghai Museum

The round building that houses the Shanghai Museum can be found on the People’s Square. Its impressive collection reminds visitors that before the middle of last century (when the Communist party confiscated works of art), the city hosted the biggest antiques fairs in East Asia and was a real hub for art. Exhibits are arranged by genre here: furniture, coins, seals, jade, bronze, calligraphy, paintings, sculptures, ceramics and art by national minorities. A considerable collection, and one that you won’t be able to do justice to in one visit, but the good news is that entry is free, so you can come back as many times as you like.
