Slightly out of the way in Xuhui district, this strange-sounding museum is actually an interesting find. The museum is filled with crime-related objects including guns, knives and drugs. It documents the history of Shanghai’s gangsters and includes exhibits on prostitution and gambling. There is even a full-scale mock-up of a prison cell. The museum also contains grisly photography of murders and other crime scenes, and provides a fascinating insight into this part of Shanghai’s history.
