Museum of Chinese in America (MoCA) – NYC – New York City

Museum Of Chinese In America

215 Centre Street, New York, NY 10013

Originally known as The Museum of Chinese in the Americas it was founded in 1980 as the Chinatown History Project, it changed its name to Chinatown History Museum in 1991, and in 1995, to the Museum of Chinese in the Americas. It is the first full-time professionally staffed museum dedicated to reclaiming, preserving, and interpreting the history and culture of Chinese and their descendants in the Western Hemisphere.

At MoCA one can find educational, cultural and community programs available to peoples of all backgrounds. Also available at MoCA are special events and exhibitions. One past exhibition, “Not on the Menu: From Asian/Pacific Islander Roots to American Reality” was comprised of a photographic collection covering the Asian American Community. Another exhibition at the time of this writing is ‘Gateway to Gold Mountain’ which is a traveling exhibit by the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, chronicling the immigration experience of thousands of Asians who came to America between 1910 and 1940.

as excerpted from their site
“MoCA has an extensive collection of primary resource material on Chinese American history and culture, including oral histories, photographs, documents, personal and organizational records, sound recordings, textiles, artifacts, and a library with over 2,000 volumes covering Asian American topics. Archives are available by appointment only. MoCA staff will review all requests.” There are also plenty of items to purchase at their Museum Store. Be sure to pay them a visit should you be in the area.
