This small museum was a real find - it is in fact quite hard to find, at the back of a dowdy looking council style building. You can wander round taking in the history of communism in China through these colourful proproganda pictures (no photographs...More

I visited this quirky yet thought-provoking museum with a Shanghai friend so we had no problems finding it. Tucked away in the basement of an apartment building, this museum is worth your time if your in the French Concession area. Full of colorful propaganda posters,...More

A brilliantly honest and thorough review of Chinese propaganda throughout the last 100 years or so. So many pieces, grouped by era with English explanations of the style and content. It deserves a better stage but maybe being in the basement of a residential block...More

It's easier to get here than the guide books suggest. There's a Metro (Jing'an Temple Stop) about 20 minutes walk away, or you can hop a bus from the Metro that stops at the apartment block. The area around the Metro is interesting -- especially...More

Our guide suggested this off the grid amazing collection of posters that span 80 years of China's modern history. Not an easy place to find in the basement of an apartment building but worth finding it if you are interested in politics through art.

Zhongshan Park
The residential and commercial areas around the
beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been
considered particularly fashionable by a majority of
Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do
choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw,
providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the
metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops
with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious
