In case you missed out on the magic that was the Shanghai World Expo in 2010, you’ll soon be able to experience the highlights in more compact form once the Shanghai World Expo Museum opens in May.
The museum has been in the works since the World Expo ended with construction breaking ground back in 2013. It promises to do something useful with over 46,000 square meters of space near Lupu Bridge on the Puxi side of the expo site.
Inside, the museum will showcase exhibits from past World Expos. Already, over 200 participants from the 2010 World Expo Shanghai have donated more than 30,000 exhibits for the museum. An additional 700 exhibits have been donated from the 2012 World Expo Yeosu in South Korea.
According to Shanghai Daily, construction has already wrapped up. Now it’s just a matter of arranging all the exhibits. Following a trial period, the museum should be open in May.
