A global museum in a global city

Situated on the bank of the Huangpu River in Shanghai the WorldSkills Museum will share the story of the organization, the competitions, industry, and vocational education and training.


Let’s tell the story together

WorldSkills is collecting objects and stories that illustrate its evolution and work around the world. We're also looking for tools and equipment linked to manufacturing and industry. Our collection will contribute to the understanding of societies, people, events, and activities related to WorldSkills. Everyone in the WorldSkills family is a part of our story. We cannot tell it without you!

Do you have medals, pins, photographs, videos, test project outcomes, historic documents, equipment, and tools linked to your skill that you would like to donate or loan? Do you want to share your experience about a regional, national or international competition 1950 – present? Or maybe you know someone who does.  All items collected may be useful for display in exhibitions, research, and other interpretive activities.
