China Art Museum Tours

Located in Pudong, Shanghai, the China Art Museum showcases a large and varied collection of modern Chinese art. In fact, it’s the largest art museum in the whole of Asia and is situated inside what was once the China Pavillion, which is a fascinating building both inside and out.

The museum is spread across five huge floors, all named according to different altitudes. Each floor explores the rise of modern art in Shanghai from the end of the 19th century onwards and showcases a variety of national and international temporary and permanent exhibitions. 

The permanent exhibition, “Along the River During the Qing Ming Festival” on the fourth floor, is a particular highlight. It’s a detailed and animated installation, with a virtual river running along its base.

Practical Info

The museum is easily reached and has its own metro station (China Art Museum), which is on Line 8. Entrance is free but some exhibitions may incur an admission fee. It can be wise to ask your hotel to book ahead for your visit to the museum as staff members often ask for reservation confirmation at the door.
