"Chinese history and culture" Shanghai Things to Do Tip by bitbit

Shanghai Things to Do: 1,089 reviews and 2,299 photos

by bitbit

The museum has a good collection of exhibits ranging from anciet coins, jade, paintings, pottery to traditional clothings and home furnishings. From these exhibits, you will learn a little more about the rich chinese history and culture. Portable handsets with explanations in japanese, english and other languages are readily available. You need only to key into the handset the numbers as indicated on the exhibit to get a detailed explanation of the exhibit on display. I was awed and much impressed by the collections and found the trip to the museum most educational.
