Explore the Shanghai Museum on a holiday to China
One of China’s most esteemed and acclaimed museums, the Shanghai Museum houses a comprehensive collection that perfectly showcases the Middle Kingdom’s millennia old history. Spread over five floors, the collections are plentiful and varied, with artefacts from each of China’s dynasties. Amongst the items are bronze, ceramics, jade, ancient calligraphy and seals. The excellent Chinese Minority Nationalities’ Art Gallery displays the arts, crafts and traditional clothing of China’s 55 minority groups. Items in this gallery include tools used for weaving and metalwork, as well as a display on the art of mask making. One could easily spend half, if not a full day wandering amongst the treasures of this comprehensive museum.
