The east branch of the Shanghai Museum is expected to enter its trial stage by the end of 2022, according to the city's urban construction administration.

Located in Pudong New Area, the branch will have a total floor area of 100,000 square meters – a significant expansion, as the current Shanghai Museum covers an area of just 39,300 square meters.

"Unlike the original Shanghai Museum, the east branch will feature both classical Chinese and modern art," said Yang Zhigang, curator of the Shanghai Museum.

A series of exhibitions will showcase the history of cultural exchanges between China and other countries, as well as Shanghai's local culture.

The new museum will also promote cultural education, research, and exchanges, teaching visitors about classical art.

For example, visitors will be able to observe staff as they restore cultural relics and mount calligraphy works and paintings, an activity that was previously not available.

Shanghai's Tongji University helped design the new museum – which is open and conducive to interaction as it makes good use of space.
