Not even 24 hours into 2006 and Shanghai had once again come up with something new: The country’s first police museum. Shanghaiist would not have bothered reading this Shanghai Daily article had it not been for the pun-alicious headline: “Police Museum Drops Charges”. Well, if you’re more clever than Shanghaiist (and we’ll give you the benefit of the doubt there) then you will have figured out that admission to this museum will be free for the first three days of January. Oh, shit. Only one day left folks. Take your kids to see the 10,000 “relics” of the foundation and development of the Shanghai police. And for all of you foreigners out there, check out your ol’ buddies at the part of the museum dedicated to the friendly folks at the Entry-Exit Bureau.
Shanghai Public Security Museum. The story, curiously, does not say where the museum is located, but it does have a ticket “hotline”: 2402-5130. Tickets are usually 8 kuai.
