Once housed in Shanghai’s Concession-era Cotton Exchange, the Shanghai Natural History Museum has since moved to a new home in the Jing’an Sculpture Park. The new facility, is inspired by themes found in nature: the northern façade’s tectonic wall recalls Earth’s strata, the eastern façade, China’s forests and the inside of a chambered nautilus. The museum incorporates smart indoor and outdoor design to create a memorable, hands-on learning experience for visitors of all ages.


The immense exhibition space allows the museum to display a considerable portion of its 290,000-piece collection, including a 140-million-year-old dinosaur skeleton of the mamenchisaurus as well as specimens of the Yellow River mammoth, the Yangtze alligator, giant salamander and giant panda. The museum has integrated mobile technology that enables visitors to interact with the exhibits via their mobile devices.
