  • Nice museum in walking distance from major hotels in the area. Nice collection of historic Chinese photographs and artifacts. The place is tiny. It takes half an hour to thoroughly go through and get a brief glimpse of Sang Diego China Town history.
  • It is a very beautiful and peaceful place with a little garden with the sound of the water and beautiful koi fish swimming in the fountain , I look forward to go to my Tai chi class on Saturday mornings,and it has worked wonders for me,sweeeet.
  • Museum is in two buildings:. One showing calligraphy is art; the other has a number of artifacts from the Chinese who settled San Diego. Some exhibits may be the last examples of the world like the 300 year old wheelbarrow for people to ride in. They said there was tai chi in the mornings in the garden. Unfortunately I couldn't participate. Recommend the museum for a quick look.
  • If you are into local, small and unique museum, this one is good for you.
  • This small museum has a very interesting display.
