The Chinese Historical Museum is a great place to see the history of Chinese people in the United States




The main exhibition area in the museum tells the history of the Chinese people in the United States. The bilingual permanent exhibition documents the first large wave of immigration that occurred during the 19th century, when more than 90% of Chinese immigrants came from the Pearl River Delta region in China. Photographs and artifacts focus on the contributions made by Chinese laborers in the development of the fishing, railroad, mining, and agriculture industries in the American West. New exhibits are scheduled throughout the year.
