Mogansham Road is a great place for art lovers to take a stroll while in Shanghai. Art buffs could easily spend hours in this fascinating district, browsing the galleries and studios that line the graffiti-clad street. There are also cafes and a bookshop in the area.
You'll find all sorts of free galleries here that showcase a diverse range of original and modern art. Many visitors to Moganshan Road leave happily with a reasonably-priced piece of art or, at the very least, after having enjoyed a few hours of pleasant art-gazing. Most tend to make a beeline for number 50 Moganshan Road, where one of the city’s oldest and most revered galleries, ShanghART, lives. This is the beating heart of Shanghai’s art world and is not to be missed while in the area.
The easiest way to reach Mogansham Road is by taxi. Alternatively, you can walk or take a rickshaw from either Zhongtan Metro Station (on lines 3/4) or Changshou Metro Station (line 7).
