The Museum of Contemporary Art in Shanghai is a giant glass gallery space conveniently located in People’s Park, where kids can run around outside after lengthy museum tours. Exhibitions in the museum are wide-ranging and have featured works from abstract Chinese art to Coco Chanel. The Art Lab on the third floor is a “living exhibition” where art, cuisine, music, and interior design are all combined, meaning that you can sip on a cup of coffee while sitting on a piece of art. During exhibition hours on the weekends, the museum hosts a “Kids’ Corner,” where children take art history lessons and participate in hands-on creative activities while their parents browse the galleries. And like with most museums, a stop in the gift shop before leaving is a must.
