Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum (Shanghai Youtai Nanmin Jinianguan)
The Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum (Shanghai Youtai Nanmin Jinianguan) is housed within the restored Ohel Moshe Synagogue, which played a key role in the lives of the 20,000 European Jewish refugees who settled in the city during World War II. The museum highlights their story through photos, films, documents, and personal items.
 
The Basics
The Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum includes the Ohel Moshe Synagogue, a permanent exhibition hall, a rotating exhibition hall, and a courtyard. Don’t miss the 111-foot-long (34-meter-long) copper Memorial Wall in the courtyard inscribed with the names of 13,732 Jews who found refuge in Shanghai during World War II.
 
Explore the museum on your own or join a guided tour that includes other key sites in Shanghai’s Jewish Quarter. Some tours include attractions elsewhere in and around Shanghai.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum is a must-visit for anyone with an interest in World War II and Jewish culture.
  • Allow yourself two hours to fully appreciate all the exhibits.
  • Visitors can purchase a combo ticket including a cup of coffee from the historical White Horse Inn across the street.
 
How to Get There
The Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum is located at 62 Changyang Road, near Zhoushan Road. To get there by public transit, take the metro, Line 12, to Tilangqiao (Exit 2) and walk northeast for 10 minutes. You can also take City Sightseeing Bus, Line 5, to Shanghai Youtai Nanmin Jinianguan, or bus 134 or 875 to Haiman Lu Changyang Lu.
 
When to Get There
Not among Shanghai’s blockbuster sights, the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum is rarely crowded, so it’s a good bet when other attractions are busiest. If you’re interested in a guided tour, given by volunteers on occasion, be sure to check ahead for timing and availability. The museum is open daily from 9am to 5pm. 
 
The Ohel Moshe Synagogue and the White Horse Inn
Established in 1927, the Ohel Moshe Synagogue played a prominent role in Shanghai’s Jewish community until it was confiscated in 1949 after the communist takeover of China. In 2007, the Hongkou District government restored the synagogue and reopened it as a museum. Across the street from the synagogue, the White Horse Café had been a popular gathering place for Jewish refugees. Demolished in 2009, the café was rebuilt in 2015 and renamed the White Horse Inn.
