The Shanghai History Museum, also sometimes translated as "Shanghai Municipal History Museum", is a museum dedicated to the history of the city of Shanghai, China.

The museum's collections focus on the approximately a hundred years in the history of Shanghai from the opening of the port in 1843 to the communist take-over in 1949.

The museum's oldest relics are from 6,000 years ago. It features a cannon used in the first Opium War, a sedan chair, and two bronze lions that used to adorn the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corp on the Bund. Other exhibits reveal the history of art, culture and industrialization in Shanghai. The neo-classical Shanghai Race Club building that houses the museum, has an imposing 10-storey tall tower which was long a landmark of central Shanghai.
