Museum of Chinese in America

Museum of Chinese in America
215 Centre St.
Manhattan, NY 10013


This expansive museum in Chinatown, which recently reopened in a new location, uses oral histories, video, photographs and written documents to bring to life the experiences of this vibrant immigrant community. The museum’s dramatic new home, designed by acclaimed architect Maya Lin—who created the Vietnam Veterans Memorial—features bronze walls, reclaimed wood floors and a "journey wall" that describes the route each donor's family took to the United States.
