It's an old townhouse furnished with items from the era. Literally you will be done after 15 minutes tops (if you choose to scan the QR codes and lisen to some audio as an introduction to each room).

Great cosy museum and it works till 11pm, I’m sure that 20 is not such a big deal. Take your time and explore the house. I was alone there so I felt like I get back in time.

Visitors interested in Shanghai's History and Culture should not miss this museum. Located in Xintiandi, this musuem provides a real experience of living in a Shikumen house in the 1920 - 30s Shanghai. Pay attention to the collections and the photographs on the wall.

This is definitely worth a look if you're in the area. Will take about ten minutes to see the whole place. I love visiting old houses in different countries...not a super-memorable attraction but definitely a nice glimpse into old Shanghai.

This museum is small, easy to do to get a glimpse of old shanghai living quarters, and not expensive. It is not super impressive as museums go, but interesting enough to make a 20 minute stop if you are in the neighborhood.

The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a
carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled
with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area
below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most
fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can
afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and
shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park
provides the area with green space and is also home to
