    The Shanghai Museum is a museum housing ancient Chinese art, sitting on the People's Square in Shanghai, China which was started in 1952 and opened in the Shanghai Racecourse Clubhouse. It moved in 1959, into the old Zhonghui building that has previously held bank and insurance offices, and it would sit there until 1992, when it would be moved once more into the land that the government had given them in People's Square. Construction began in 1993, and finished in 1996, with five floors and designed in the shape of an ancient bronze cooking vessel called a ding. They say that the inspiration for the design would be given by Da Ke Ding, that is now showcased at the museum, with a round top and square base, that symbolizes the Chinese perception of the world as a round sky and square earth. This magnificent museum houses more than 120,000 pieces of artworks that include; paintings, seals, bronze, calligraphy, ancient coins, foreign art, ceramics, furniture, minority art and jades.
