    A good historical representation of Chinese life in San Diego through the history of the city. Excellent historical photographs. A nice display of history of Chinese-American San Diego residents and their World War II service. More displays and a larger venue would be appropriate.

    They had an exhibit about how the problem of typing the Chinese language was solved. My programming buddies and I got to geek out on hexadecimal and binary patterns. I thought it was very educational and learned a lot about how the persistent some where in preserving the Chinese language in the age of technological revolution. I think the five bucks was a small price to pay to learn about how big communication problems were solved.
