What people are saying:

There are also many Chinese in New York, and many of them were sold as piglets to the United States as coolies more than 100 years ago. The Chinese Museum has very detailed information to introduce us to the history of Chinese in the United States

    Interesting and informative but not in a preachy way.

    this museum was just the right size with interesting exhibits and including artifacts, life stories of Chinese Americans and their contributions to our country. Will take about 1.5+ hours if you read ...
