If you are interested in knowing the history of a place, what could be a better way of doing it than visiting its museum? While in China, Shanghai Museum is the place to be for lovers of art and heritage. The dome of the museum building symbolizes the heaven, while the square shaped base symbolizes the land, as per the ancient Chinese concepts. At this place, you will get to see all types of antique Chinese arts made in bronze, ceramics, jades and other historically important paintings, coins, calligraphy, sculptures, Qing furniture, seals, and minority nationalities. The entire collection is meant to improve the understanding about Chinese civilizations.
The museum premises have been divided into eleven galleries and three exhibition halls. It houses not hundreds but thousands of relics from China’s glorious past. This country was one of the first ones to use a currency; thus, over 7000 pieces have been displayed in the Gallery of Chinese Coins to demonstrate the economic growth and foreign exchange. Shanghai Museum is centrally located at People’s Square and hence reaching here would not be a problem. You would require taking out about 1.5 hours for visiting this place and every minute would be worth it.
