    • Editor's Description
      The top of the Shanghai Museum is shaped like an ancient Chinese cooking pot, so it should be tough to miss. Eleven galleries spread over four floors offer an artistic historical tour of the Middle Kingdom dating from as far back as 20 centuries B.C.E. Jade, Ming and Qing dynasty furniture and traditional Chinese calligraphy are a few of the highlights. If you are willing to browse, you can cover this museum in a day.
