Plan your Shanghai tour? If you are an automotive fan or you are traveling with your kids, a visit to Shanghai Auto Museum is highly recommended. The auto museum is located about 38km to the west of the People’s Square in Huangpu District, Shanghai. To reach Shanghai Auto Museum, you need to take the nearest metro line and interconnect metro line 11 and get off at the station of Anting (安亭),  then walk south for about 1.5 km to get to the museum, or you may take the bus no.4 from Anting to the museum.

The museum has three floors dedicated to the exhibition of the old timers and vintage cars with a total number of 80 vehicles. Many of the cars on display are American cars and you will also see quite some Chinese cars. The history and evolution are well charted and cars are gleaming.

The third floor displays the parts of the cars with education information.  There you can learn about braking, gears, seat systems etc, a lovely educational aid for young ones to learn hands-on experience.

The museum is embedded into a huge Auto Expo Park. After your visiting the museum, you may have a stroll around the park. For the museum itself, you need to spend 2 hours to do justice. Basically you need to have 1/2 day to cover your transfer, visiting the museum and walk around the auto park.
