This small museum is pretty cool. It documents the development of Shanghai with pictures of old Shanghai all the way to an impressive scale model of central Shanghai. The model is by far the most interesting part of the museum, but the rest is good as well.
Note that you can not bring lighters into the museum, but must leave them outside.

Located in the heart of Shanghai, at the People's Square right beneath the city hall, this museum contains a huge (around 600m²) model of the city. But the model doesn't show the city as it is right now, but rather the city in around five years (e.g. the Shanghai Tower is already finished in 2012 :) ).. beneath the city model, there're different sections about public transportation, energy consumption or the deep sea harbour nearby the city, but the model is definitely the highlight.

If you think the scale of Shanghai and what has been achieved in the last 2 decades is impressive, then take 15 minutes out to see the model on the 4th floor of this exhibition space. Never though I'd say this of something with the title 'urban planning' but; Awesome.

As an urban planner I really enjoyed a short visit to the Exhibition Hall - although I'm not sure the average visitor to China would enjoy it as much as I did. The huge scale model of the city is almost worth the price of admission, but it may be the only part of the exhibit that is really and truly interesting for the average public.
