Proposed merge with Shanghai Art Museum
Oppose. ---Another Believer (Talk) 13:50, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
- Seems sensible the building may be new but most of the collection will be the same. Care to give a reason, User:Another Believer? Johnbod (talk) 20:05, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
- Well, actually, I don't know. I am confused about the best way for Wikipedia to cover the Shanghai Art Museum, Shanghai Race Club, the notable building that housed the Shanghai Race Club, and the China Art Museum. I crossed out my vote above and will let others decide. ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:44, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
Support merge: the website for the China Art Museum recognizes its continuity with the Shanghai art museum; for example, giving its foundation date as 1956. Having a separate page for the Shanghai Race Club, however, seems reasonable. So, then we have pages for the institutions rather the buildings, which is consistent.Klbrain (talk) 13:30, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
- Oppose: the article Shanghai Art Museum is mostly about the building, not the exhibits. The building has been reopened as the Shanghai History Museum. -Zanhe (talk) 15:20, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
- OK; withdrawing my objection and closing the discussion as there is evidently no consensus to merge, nor is anyone strongly minded to do so. I agree that separating the material about the former building, and about the museum, is reasonable. Klbrain (talk) 21:04, 25 May 2018 (UTC)
