The regal white building that houses the Shanghai Museum of Arts and Crafts dates back to the early 1900s and its French Renaissance-inspired design is just part of what makes a visit to this cultural destination worthwhile.
Visitors who wander the well-kept galleries will find a vast collection of local artwork and artifacts that highlight the city’s history, development and design. Though the museum is relatively small compared to others in the city, travelers say the coin and bill collection and jade and bamboo carvings are some of the best around.
The museum is located at No. 79 Fenyang Road in Shanghai. It is stationed at the intersection of Fenyang and Taiyuan Roads. Entrance to the museum is free.
