Shikumen Museum Tours

7 Reviews
The Shikumen Museum is a small traditional stone-gate house located in the Xintiandi area of Shanghai’s Huangpu District. The aim of the museum is to present traditional Shanghai life as it was 100 years ago, with a mock-up of a typical home on the lower level and a small museum at the top. Shikumen is a style of house that once dominated Shanghai, and this example has been wonderfully restored and transformed into a fascinating place to visit.

There are several main rooms to explore, all featuring period furniture and filled with interesting artefacts and antiques. Items range from traditional Chinese rosewood furniture, to sewing machines and various household objects. The small exhibition upstairs contains a series of sketches and photographs focusing on various elements of traditional family and working life.

Insider’s Tip
As the Shikumen Museum is quite small, it doesn't take much time to visit (around 30 minutes), making it particularly easy to visit with children.

Practical Info

The closest metro stations to the museum are Huangpi Road South on Line 1 to the north, and Xintiandi on Line 10 to the south.
