Museum of Chinese in America

The exhibition With a Single Step begins with the history of the United States and China in the 19th-century, and showcases artifacts, photos, cultural traditions, and the impact of Chinese American relations from 1900 to the present. Other exhibits have focused on culture, and the work of influential Chinese Americans. Educational programs teach groups about many aspects of Chinese American history.

School

Students can learn about the successive waves of Chinese immigrants, and their reasons for coming to America. By looking at artifacts and sources, they will explore differences in where they settled, how they adapted, and how they influenced American society. Additional topics include stereotypes, the Lunar New Year, and the Chinese-American experience during World War 2. The Customs and Traditions program is a guided gallery hunt where students can find signs of Chinese folktales, animals, and other traditions. Walking tours of Chinatown make use of historical documents to reveal how the neighborhood has both changed and stayed the same.

FUN FACTS

Multiculturalism is a situation in which all the different cultural or racial groups in a society have equal rights and opportunities, and none is ignored or regarded as unimportant.

English is not the official language of the United States. However, it’s the de facto national language. One out of five people living in the United States can speak a language other than English in the home. The top five languages spoken at home by people over the age of 5 are English, Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
