Chinese American Museum

Chinese American Museum

Through the extensive collection of art, documents, images and artifacts, visitors can gain a better knowledge of the role of Chinese and Chinese Americans in establishing the California community and the 150-year Chinese American experience in California. The museum is housed inside the oldest surviving Chinese buildings in Southern California—the Garnier Building and an adjacent historic structure (425 North Los Angeles Street). The Museum site stands inside El Pueblo Monument, a 44-acre public park located at the City’s “birthplace” in downtown Los Angeles.

We hope you enjoy our work.
