For all the culture vultures out there, here's a cheaper option for your museum- and gallery-hopping – the Shanghai Museum and Art Museum Pass. This new annual pass grants you access to 52 museums and 36 galleries across the city. Visit just four or five and you’ll already have gotten your money’s worth, as the pass itself costs only 299RMB.

Valid for use until 30 April 2020, you’ll have the better part of a year to check out some of the city’s best spots, like the Shanghai Natural History Museum, the Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art, Fosun Foundation Art Center and the Power Station of Art.

An added perk: 13 kid-friendly attractions like Peppa Pig World of Play and the Shanghai Dungeon are also available through the annual pass. Each also comes with ten bonus points, which can be used in exchange for a visit to tourist attractions not on the list, including a Huangpu River Cruise and cultural performances. Checking out ten of the listed venues gets you another ten bonus.

Something to note is that each site can only be visited once, and that each visit requires a reservation on iWen1’s WeChat account in advance. Check out the full list of participating sites in Chinese here, or click here to purchase a pass.
