Wulixiang Shikumen Museum, Shanghai

Wulixiang Shikumen Musuem (Chinese: 屋里厢博物馆) is located No 25, Lane 181 Taicang Road, in Xintiandi of Shanghai. It is a themed exhibition hall that displays the traditonal Shanghai residental houses called Shikumen. “Wulixiang” literally means “home” in the Shanghai dialect. Over 70% of Shanghai residents were born and raised in Shikumen houses. However, Shikumen are now fast disapearing; downtown, only areas like Tianzifang and Xintiandi remain some.

The Exhibition Hall is in a renovated Shikumen house built in the 1920s. It covers a floor space of 367.2 square metres and a gross floor area of 513.9 square metres. It is modlled on a household in an alley. There are seven exhibition rooms: the sitting room, the study room, the elderly room, the master bedroom, the daughter’s room, the son’s room and the kitchen. It reapears how a typical family lived in Shanghai in the 1920s. All the articles on display, whether cooking ranges or children’s textbooks, lipsticks or ashtrays, are all genuine 1920s or 1930s things sourced in the Shikumen alleys.

The museum is near the site of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China.
