So it's a place where they have exhibitions, but they don't have a regular collection, they have different exhibitions visiting. I went to Shinkai Makoto exhibition and although pretty and quite interesting, it wasn't really a good one (mostly printouts of screenshots from movies, storyboards,...More

This space is huge. I took my visual arts students here for a visit recently, and I am glad I did. The quality of the exhibits was impressive. Plus the curation of the shows and the use of the gallery space greatly added to the...More

The last review mentioned that the place is empty and dead. I can confirm that in May 2018 there are two amazing exhibitions going on which I highly recommend. The space is open and grand and reminds me of the Tate Modern. I will definitely...More

Literally nothing here. Like literally an empty building. Not worth the effort to get here. Two exhibitions were open (less than 10% of the space was used). A jewellery exhibit was open next the the cafe. A weird multimedia exhibition was open upstairs. Everything else...More

Free entrance, and can enjoy the view of Huangpu River at the rooftop level. Interesting exhibitions all year round, and interesting gift shop as well.

There were only three exhibits when I visited, there is so much space that it’s a shame more use isn’t made of this venue. The jewelry exhibit was by far the most interesting. The Superarchitecture exhibit makes one happy that this 1960/1970 movement never went...More

The museum is housed in a power station. It provides great space to exhibit art. When we visited only the first floor and part of the 2nd floor were occupied with an interesting exhibition of Li Shan. The remaining 3.5 floors were empty. The museum...More

South Bund
This waterfront area below the most famous section of
the Huangpu River has undergone multiple phases of
development that started when the Waterhouse Hotel
opened its doors. Though it’s been slower to catch on
than people expected, every year something new and
exciting opens up and gives people a reason to keep
calling the South Bund the "Next Big Thing." There are
a couple of landmark hotels and restaurants of
