Right in People's square you'll find the Shanghai museum. It keeps a collection of various forms of ancient Chinese arts. There are galleries dedicated to manuscripts and calligraphy, porcelain, religious motifs, and others.

A favorite is the top floor gallery on ethnic minority life style. Here you can find traditional dress from all of China's minority regions. There are many masks and sculptures from Tibet. The Miao head wear is amazing to see with all of its intricacies.

There are always temporary exhibits, since I went a bit before the Beijing Olympic games there was an exposition on the Greek Olympic tradition.

There were good English signs that made it easy to navigate for foreigners.

This museum, with its 10,000 m2 of exhibition reunites a very good sample of the Chinese art. It is very comfortable and everything is very well exposed. Recommended.
