I love visiting various Jewish historic museums around the world, however I do not like this museum at all, it is a classic piece of Chinese propaganda, to illustrate the Chinese supremacy ! The entire museum is dedicated to one single theme, how Chinese "saved"...More

I've been living in Shanghai for two years and only recently went here when some friends were visiting. The museum is well done, tickets are reasonable, and the history was very interesting. Wandering the neighborhood around it is a nice bonus as well.

It is one of the most interesting and probably underrated places in Shanghai. It shows the history and stories of Jews in Shanghai during and after World War 2. I personally think it's kind of small place.

History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without
taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
