Fodor's Review

Housed inside the China Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo site, this gleaming homage to contemporary art has a whopping 27 exhibition halls. Much of the work is underwhelming, but be sure to stop by the animation hall, where you can catch shorts and feature-length films from the '50s to the '90s. The touring exhibits are often a real treat; besides a huge Picasso retrospective, the museum has hosted works from New York's Whitney Museum, London's British Museum, and Paris's

Maisons de Victor Hugo. Look for works from David Hockney, Jasper Johns, and Rodin. Reservations are required, and your hotel should be able to help.
