The Chinese American Museum is actually housed in the oldest surviving Chinese building in Southern California, and has been in operation since 1988. When you visit this museum, you’ll find a lot of different touring exhibits, as they change often. However, be sure to check out “Origins: The Birth and Rise of Chinese American Communities in Los Angeles,” one of the permanent exhibits on display. This exhibit showcases the growth and development of Chinese Americans from Downtown Los Angeles to the San Gabriel Valley.
Another interesting exhibit is “Journeys,” which is a narrated exhibit that shows the Chinese immigration to the United States with an emphasis on the settlement in Los Angeles. The display is separated into four time periods all with different descriptions and personal stories about a local Chinese American and his or her own experiences during that period.These exhibits are just a tiny sampling of the many different ways you can learn about Chinese American culture at this important museum.
