  • It's beautiful. They have various exhibits and one of my favorites is the Sour Sweet Bitter Spicy exhibit which highlights the food that Asian Americans have been making and cooking. There's a historical walking tour you can go for, yet another one of my favorites. They have a small replica of an Asian American General Store that was donated to them. It's brilliant, you can't go wrong visiting this if you're in Chinatown.
  • Its good to go and do your own thing the tour guide was too swift soo alot of information was missed but i can tell they have some nice jems
  • Gotta show my respect and support for this place. Aftering touring this place it reminds me of how lucky I am that our ancestors went thru the most brutal time for us.
  • The museum is small and compact but has a good variety of exhibits. The exhibition on Chinese food was actually a collection of stories by various food experts, highlighting their personal and culinary journeys to, in, and around America. The exhibits on the past and present struggles faced by the Chinese were eye-opening and sobering. Free entrance every first Thursday of the month.
  • Not a lot of stuff but exquisite. Very informational and is pretty cool. The ticket was a little expensive considering the small size of the museum.
