This is a fantastic gem - ideal when visitors encounter a rainy day. The best museum in Shanghai by 100x. The gallery is HUGE - life-size dioramas of old Shanghai - streets, shops, old cars...educational, interactive, and very cool. Highly recommended! Buy tix and enter at the same gate as for entry to the tour that goes up the tower, but then take elevator down to basement, while sweaty unhappy tourists wait in tremendous lines to be herded through dirty windowed galleries up top. Btw, MUCH better to have a drink on the 92nd floor of the SWFC!
