    Not easy to find, but worth it! It's in the basement of building B, in the President Mansion apartment complex. Beautifully curated with many pieces for sale. Allow an hour or less to look around. -- Heather Rose-Chase via Foursquare

    There's a ton to see, and while some of it is great, other sections lack variety. Had no problems with crowds on a weekday afternoon. -- Alex Dobyan via Foursquare

    Get in early. Closes at 5:15pm. Has 4 floors and each one is amazing. 30RMB per adult. Queue is never longer than 10 min of waiting time. Well worth it. Inside you have restaurants etc. -- Vladislav Perge via Foursquare

    Though much of the centre can be skipped, the enormous scale model of the city on the third floor is the main reason to come here. The sheer scale of it all is worth the 30RMB entrance fee alone. -- Time Out Shanghai via Foursquare

    The whole area of artists, their studios and exhibitions! Smaller than 798 in Beijing, but not worse. Good place to spend whole day if you like modern art. -- Artyom Fedosov via Foursquare

    The place I went to, in the park, only had 2 artists on display. I enjoyed their work, but most people seemed to be there for the rooftop patio. Did I miss a whole wing or something? -- Erika Beatty via Foursquare

    Muito bacana! Museu gratuito. Se você tem pouco tempo ou não curte museu visite pelo menos o segundo andar onde estão as porcelanas (algumas de 1000 anos A. C.) e o quarto andar dos trajes típicos. -- Juliana Barbosa via Foursquare

    Experimental temporary shows are the draw at the Bund’s only contemporary art gallery, which wows with an eye-catching Art Deco façade and interiors by London-based architect David Chipperfield. -- Travel + Leisure via Foursquare

    Built in an old power station, the mammoth, 443,000-square-foot museum played host to the 2012 Shanghai Biennale. It’s the first public museum on the mainland to showcase contemporary Chinese art. -- Travel + Leisure via Foursquare
