TODAYS MILEAGE – 17 miles or 27 kilometres

Considered one of China's first world-class modern museums, the Shanghai Museum covers 39,200 m² (9.7 acres) over 5 floors and houses a collection of over 120,000 pieces, including bronze, ceramics, calligraphy, furniture, jades, ancient coins, paintings, seals, sculptures as well as minority & foreign art.

As many accolades that the museum seems to gather, I was somewhat nonplussed by the experience as I was wanting to know the history or provenance of quite a few of the displays.
