Shanghai Astronomy Museum

Location:No. 380 Lingang Avenue, Nanhui New Town, Pudong New Area, Shanghai



Shanghai Astronomy Museum is in Lin'gang Special Area. The floor space is about 38,000 square meters. Its design concept is "connecting people to the universe". Its mission is to stimulate people's curiosity. Its vision is to shape a complete view of the universe for people. The museum encourages people to feel the space, understand the universe and think about the future. The unique architectural design is derived from a formal abstraction of orbital motion, which not only presents an astronomical concept, but also literally tracks the movement of the sun in the sky, making the entire building a huge astronomical instrument that can represent the passage of time. Around the Summer Solstice in particular, the building's shadow overlaps with the markings on the ground, forming a solar term symbol.
