Shanghai National Museum

Taking a look at China's past.

overcast 82 °F

Shanghai National Museum is one of the best museums of Chinese history in the entire country. The museum has exhibits of the history of currency in China, minority crafts and clothing styles, seals (not the animal), paintings, calligraphy, ceramics, bronze work and jade. A lot of exhibits are donations from private collectors because a large portion of the nation's cultural relics departed to Taiwan with the Nationalists.
