Natural museums

(meet-in-shanghai.net) | Feb 28, 2014

This city is probably not the first place people would think of for learning a bit more about nature. But don’t be so quick to judge. After all, it does have its strong points: two insect museums, in fact, with giant insect models and specimens of endangered species that can bring you, and especially your kids, an unforgettable experience or even a lesson in entomology.

Shanghai Wild-Insect Kingdom
The Wild-Insect Kingdom sits between the Riverside Promenade and Oriental Pearl TV Tower. It was the first venue of its kind in China, with birds and bees, beetles and butterflies, and creepy crawlies all on display. It houses several galleries with a tropical rainforest and reptile cave and has insect models that can be pretty strange to adult eyes, but kids like the interactive exhibits where they can feed the critters and catch fish.
