Even in Shanghai, the most modern city in China, locals are reluctant to speak about the Cultural Revolution. The prevailing attitude is one that favors optimism, and many unfavorable aspects of the country’s history are glossed over and not discussed. Visitors who find the Mao years fascinating should make this progressive museum a must-stop when in Shanghai. Tucked away in the basement of an unmarked apartment complex, the Propaganda Art museum boasts a trove of posters from the Maoist period of communist China, which are interesting historical artifacts and unique souvenirs to bring home.
