Weren’t here in Shanghai in 2010 when the World Expo was in town? Were here and want to relive that magical experience? Well, come one, come all to the newly-opened World Expo Museum.
Built near the Lupu Bridge on the Puxi side of the former expo site, the museum contains eight permanent exhibition halls which are crammed full of 3,000 exhibits from past World Expos.
The museum has been in the works since the Shanghai World Expo ended with construction breaking ground back in 2013. Finally, it opened on Monday, and it’s free of charge!
So, if you have some free time this weekend you can go check it out. The museum is located at 818 Mengzi Road and conveniently has its own metro stop on Line 13. It’s open from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays to Sundays.
