lol. No, when was the last time you were in Dalian :)
In about 2010 it got knocked down, shortly after it was built. Then between 2010 - 2014 they rebuilt pretty much the same thing, but now it's a 5 start hotel - you should go there. It's still one of the best attractions in Dalian.
It's called Castle Hotel Dalian.
I thought they moved the Shell Museum to Xinghai Square?
It's definitely still open. Went there a week ago. It's in Xinghai square. Admission is relatively high at 100 rmb
