The museum provides a research and appreciation platform for classical automobile fans.

【Shanghai Volkswagen Industrial Tour】

Shanghai Volkswagen, a Chinese-German joint venture, houses the largest auto manufacturing base in China. The Shanghai Volkswagen Industrial Tour is an experimental industrial tour route in China. Tourists who find themselves by the assembly line can witness the car-making process. Visitors will be amazed by the advanced science and technology on display.

【Auto Exposition Park】

The park, which covers an area of 768,000 square meters, is China's first auto museum or theme park focusing on auto culture. It offers various services such as auto exposition, exhibition, leisure and entertainment, all of which unfolds in a relaxing atmosphere with modern flavor and natural charm.

【Anting Old Street】

Located northwest of the international auto city, the street is of typical southern China style. With overall renovations in the past years, Anting Old Street has regained its charms and styles of the Ming and Qing dynasties, and has developed its unique "road-river-street" pattern with the Anting River as the axis and with the ancient Yansi Bridge of the Ming Dynasty (1368 -1644) as the center. In the street, the nine-story Yongan Tower, 52.88 meters tall, was newly constructed for skyscraper view.

The ancient Bodhi Temple of the Three Kingdoms Period was reconstructed, and shopping, leisure and catering facilities such as shops reflecting the old street culture, souvenir shops for auto city tourists and traditional snack food restaurants were opened along the street. Strolling in the Anting old street, it gives visitors a sense of stepping into the past. Old shops, with red walls and black tiles, line along the street.
