Located on West Nanjing Rd near the People’s Square. Easy to access. The building is the former Shanghai Race Club, a historical and cultural heritage of Shanghai. You can see the history of Shanghai here from the Shang dynasty till 1949 for free.
In the same place, there is another museum called Shanghai Revolution Museum (上海革命历史博物馆). Shanghai played an important part in revolution 100 years ago and there is a close connection between the city and CCP, so the story is not just about Shanghai.
(2) Shanghai History Museum (上海城市历史发展陈列馆)
I would call it a exhibition rather than a museum. And I found out that the official English name of THIS museum is the same as the one mentioned before. Quite confusing. It is located in the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Easy to access too. The biggest point are the exhibits about concession history.
Hope you enjoy!
