Shanghai Municipal History Museum , {CATEGORY}

This excellent museum in the basement of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower in Pudong tells the history of Shanghai with an emphasis on the colonial period between 1860 and 19. Fascinating exhibits include dioramas of the Huangpu River, the Bund, Nanjing Lu, and foreign concessions, evoking the colorful street life and lost trades of the 19th and early 20th centuries, dozens of models of Shanghai's classic avenues and famous buildings, and a vehicle collection with trolley cars (the city line opened in 1908), 1920s sedans, and a U.S. jeep (popular after World War II) among others. Other intriguing bits include a gorgeously ornate wedding palanquin, boulders marking the concessions' boundaries, and visiting chits used in brothels. The museum takes about an hour to tour. Tickets are purchased at the Oriental Pearl TV Tower gate. Audio headsets (¥30/$4.30/£2.15) can enhance your visit but are not crucial, as displays are well annotated in English and Chinese.
