This rather menacing place plots the history of that most beloved Shanghai institution, the local security machine. The focus is on the police department but there's some spy stuff to be found too. Most of the signage is in Chinese, but head to the third floor where collections of guns, pistols, axes and saws used in real murder cases should be pretty self-explanatory.
