As a museum of ancient Chinese art, Shanghai Museum possesses a collection
of 120,000 precious works of art. Its rich and high-quality collection of ancient Chinese bronze, ceramics, painting and calligraphy is specially celebrated in the world. Founded and first open to the public in the building previously of the

Zhonghui Building at 16 S. Henan Road in 1959, the museum developed very
quickly in aspects of acquisition, conservation, research, exhibition, education and cultural exchanges with other institutes.
