Shanghai Museum

Shanghai is a night photography paradise. There is no shortage of neon and its major landmarks are lit up each night in the most flattering way including the Shanghai Museum pictured here.

Founded in 1952 its current abode was built in the 1990s. The modern Chinese aesthetic houses more than 100,000 pieces of ancient art. You could easily spend a day here. Located in People’s Square not far from Nanjing Road the museum is open 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. every day except Saturday when it stays open until 7 p.m. Admission is 20 yuan.

You can see more night photography of Shanghai here and here.

Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you for stopping by as well.
Was last in Marrakesh in June.
Homes in NYC and Marrakesh, great balance of places to live! I get off at the 23rd street stop on the Lex line several times a week.

Travel can be costly but there are frugal ways to travel also. I don't take for granted my freedom to travel and live my life so that I can and will continue to do so as long as I am able.
