Located within the People’s Park, MoCA debuted in 2005 as the first independent and contemporary art house in Shanghai. Exhibitions highlight young, emerging Chinese artists as well as global powerhouses. A Chanel introspective, for instance, featured film reels, couture pieces, and other items that helped chart the brand’s inspirations. On sunny days, the rooftop patio and bar is a fantastic place to kick back and enjoy the scenery from a birds-eye view. Photo by Libby Rosof//Flickr.
Tucked into People's Park, this glass building is spacious and light filled--a nice change from some of the gloomier warehouse galleries. Showcasing some of the greatest modern art exhibits, this museum has worked with New York's Guggenheim Museum; showcased fashion exhibits of Salvatore Ferragamo, Chanel, Dior; and even held China’s largest Gaudi exhibition. Check their website link below for information on their latest exhibits. Museum Hours: Sun-Thurs 10:00-18:00 Fri & Sat 9:00-19:00 Tickets: 20 RMB
