上海博物馆。 Shanghai is huge but easy to commute between one place to another place. I stayed around Cao Bao Lu Zhan (漕宝路) – Shanghai Metro. When I got there , the weather was a bit cold but sunny. From my accommodation, it would take 7 Stations to People Square Station(人民广场). I took line number 1 which is RED. To use the Metro, you need to understand/read some Chinese scripts. You can only get a ticket from vending machines so bring some small change with you. Vending machines take coins and notes mostly 5 and 10 RMB. The charge is between 3-4 RMB. It really depends on how far you would travel. I used to pay 6 RMB and it was all my mistake. Moreover, there are many exits. This will make you really confused. So, be prepared then.
The museum is free for entry and there are many things to be seen. On entering the museum, everyone needs to get checked by the security clearance on the ground floor. This is no pain and it is real quick. Please remember this, you all can only enter from the back of the building where the restaurant is. I do not know why. If you want to know, please ask them then. What you might see there are Calligraphy, Sculpture, Bronze, Ceramics, Furniture, Paintings, Coins and etc. You would love them then. This would take you a couple hours to allow yourself to see all.
Pictures for you to get some idea of what might be there :
