Tobacco museum a giant advertisement

| May 23, 2013

Local health control people have accused the TobaccoMuseum in Shanghai, China, of being a giant advertisement for the tobacco industry, according to a story in the Global times.

They are demanding that the authorities revoke the museum’s honorary titles that allow the museum to present itself as a venue suitable for students.

The Times story quoted a museum employee as saying that the museum had been under fire since the School of Public Health at FudanUniversity published a video and report last year criticizing the venue.
