Shanghai Natural History Museum Opens

04/24/2015

The new Shanghai Natural History Museum debuted to the public this week in its brand-new building within the Jing’an Sculpture Park. Previously housed in the former Shanghai Cotton Exchange Building that was built in 1923, the new museum building has opened after nine years of design, planning and construction. The unique design of the new museum echoes a nautilus shell, an apt representation for this museum building, which houses nearly 290,000 samples. As one of China’s largest museums of natural sciences, the Shanghai Natural History Museum offers visitors a wide array of life sciences, from the oceans to the skies to land masses from across space and time. A complete specimen of a four-story-high, 140-million-year-old dinosaur skeleton (of a Mamenchisaurus) is housed in the Shanghai Natural History Museum, as well as rare specimens that can’t be found elsewhere outside China, such as a Yellow River mammoth, giant panda, giant salamander, and Yangtze Alligator.
