How to Get There

On my last visit in Shanghai, I visited China Art Museum which located at 205 Shangnan Rd, Pudong Xinqu. To go there, you can take Metro Line 8 and get off at Zhonghua Yishugong Station or Line 7 and get off at Yuntailu Station, then take exit 6 and walk north for about 700 meters. Beside metro, you can also take bus no 83, 314, 454, 1049 or Nanchuan Line and get off at Xueyelu Shangnanlu Station, then keep walking until you find a crossroad, turn north and walk along the Shangnan Road around 300 meters to find the museum.
