Shanghai Museum

Highly recommended
Shanghai Museum is a must for visitors to the city, who should set aside at least half a day to do it justice. Opened in 1994, its modern architecture comprises a floor plan that is a eulogy to the Earth and the Cosmos, while its bright and airy exhibition area showcases collections that chart China's history since its very beginnings. The museum is organised around three themes: a collection of bronzes (18C BCE - 3C CE), ceramics, and a gallery of paintings, in which every Chinese artistic trend and school is represented.
