The Shanghai Museum (Chinese:上海博物館) is a museum of ancient Chinese art, situated on the People's Square in the Huangpu District of Shanghai (centre of the city). Many experts think Shanghai Museum is the best museum in China.

The permanent galleries are:

Gallery of Ancient Chinese Bronze
Gallery of Ancient Chinese Sculpture
Gallery of Ancient Chinese Ceramics
Gallery of Ancient Chinese Jades
Gallery of Ancient Chinese Paintings
Gallery of Ancient Chinese Calligraphy
Gallery of Ancient Chinese Seals
Gallery of Ancient Chinese Numismatics
Gallery of Chinese Furniture in Ming and Qing dynasties
Gallery of Arts and Crafts by Chinese Minorities

If you like Shang bronze artifacts then this is a paradise! But as you can see in the list above there is more to see than the ancient bronze objects.
