Shanghai Museum
 People's Square is located on a former horse-racing track, and Shanghai Museum is located on People's Square. Got it? Good. Designed in the shape of an ancient bronze cooking vessel called a ding, the museum showcases antiquities from every era of Chinese history, including handsome carved wood furniture, calligraphy, paintings—mostly classical-style landscapes—and ancient coins. The museum’s collection is enormous but, truth be told, some exhibits are a little dry. Of particular interest, though, is the Chinese Minorities gallery, with displays of the colorful traditional clothing of several of China’s ethnic groups, including those of the Miao and Yi peoples.
