With three floors of over 70,000 exhibits, the Public Security Museum covers the time from Shanghai's first policemen in 1854 to the latest technology in crime detection. On the second floor, old Shanghai is rebuilt with actual cobble stone floors and street lamps. The third floor is dedicated to real murder cases. No details are spared—one frightening example is a scull with a pair of scissors sticking into it! The fire control exhibition on the fourth floor is fun for kids with many things to discover.
