Shanghai Natural History Museum

One of the better natural history museums in China this is pretty diverse, interesting and easy to understand.  Lots of information available via QR codes (mainly in Chinese)

Well layed out floor plans and easy to follow signage make it a stress free experience.  I particularly liked the dinosaur and prehistoric creatures section

Good place for kids and familes.  Ticket can be bought through wechat or onsite. Passport is needed


You can take the metro of the same name : Shanghai Natural History Museum Station

Hours And Pricing: The museum is open Tuesday–Sunday from 9am–5.15pm. They close on Mondays. Tickets are 30rmb for adults, 25rmb for seniors, and 12rmb for students. At the moment they only offer tour guides and audio tours in Chinese, for 200rmb and 20rmb respectively, but they said English is probably / maybe coming soon. Could be a month, could be never. They also offer bag check. Like almost everything else in this place, it looks pretty legit.

Address: 510 Beijing Xi Lu, near Chengdu Bei Lu. 北京西路510号,近石门二路
