The Power Station of Art, opened in 2012, is being touted as Shanghai’s answer to the Tate Modern. It occupies a renovated —vast and impressive—power station that overlooks the more gritty, industrial end of the Huangpu River. Exhibitions are generally free (or very cheap), and the new museum has already hosted some major collections. In 2013, Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal, the largest retrospective of the pop artist’s work to ever travel to Asia, showed here. There is little else to see around the museum, but it is worth an afternoon trip for art lovers. The Power Station of Art also hosts the renowned Shanghai Biennale.
