On the last day of New York, I went to a place I should go most - "Chinatown" where the facade was not so impressive "Museum of History of Chinese Americans". The collection is rich, ranging from the tea sensation in the United States in the eighteenth century to the influx of gold-rushing Chinese workers; from the "Chinese Exclusion Act" to the Allied War of Resistance; from the popularity of "miscellaneous" food and magic performances to the yellow faces in Hollywood; as well as the anti-Communist Party in the fifties, the social changes caused by the establishment of diplomatic relations in the seventies, and so on. It's a pity that most Chinese tourists do not list it as a must-see item. I recommend it to you hereby.
The Chinese Museum hidden in New York Chinatown is not known to most people, but as a Chinese, it should be visited. It tells the history of Chinese blood and tears in a large number of pictures and objects. From the first generation of piglets to the modern Chinese elite, all the pictures and collections have bilingual descriptions in Chinese and English. It is of great value. It's worth mentioning that the museum was designed by Ms. Lin Huiyin's niece, Lin Jing. Another of her masterpieces in the United States is the Vietnam War Monument in Washington.
I spent half a day in New York Chinatown and had dinner. I happened to find the Museum of Chinese Americans on a side road. It was very quiet in the busy Chinatown. The facade is small and the entrance is not big. After an hour's visit, I read it carefully, mainly about the struggle history of Chinese in the United States since the Qing Dynasty. The efforts of several generations have created the status of the Chinese people today. From piglets to high-tech talents. In the past few years, I have been to Microsoft Headquarters where my son works in Seattle. Among the 6,000 doctors, there are 2,000 Chinese doctors. They come from Tsinghua, Peking University, Fudan, Jiaotong University, China University of Science and Technology, Zhejiang University, Nanda and Tsinghua, Peking University, Jiaotong University, Taiwanese University and several famous schools in Hong Kong. They are the top students of these famous schools.
Located in the Chinatown District of Manhattan, it is a place dedicated to showcasing the history of Chinese Americans in the past 200 years. A hundred years ago, Chinese laborers and many laborers from all over the world worked together to build railways and cities. However, the hard work of generations has not been widely recognized, and there are still many discrimination and inequality. Here we record history through photographs and objects.
The Chinese museum is very small, just inside New York Chinatown. It's a little unexpected, so at first I thought the building opposite was. When I came here, it was Monday. It was closed. Unfortunately, when I looked outside, I felt that it was really not big inside. I even had to pay for it. It was said that it was $10. The cost-effectiveness ratio was really low. Come here on Thursday and visit it for free on Thursday.
The whole museum is not very big. It is estimated that it will be over in an hour. Mainly Chinese immigration history exhibition in the United States. The content is general. Sometimes there will be more interesting exhibitions. If you go to China Town and are interested in the content of the special exhibition, it would be good to take a look by the way.
The museum's history dates back 36 years. In 1980, a Chinese community called the New York Chinatown History Project decided to preserve these precious histories by recording, photographing and collecting items, thinking that the memories and experiences of the older generation of Chinese working in the United States were disappearing. It's worth seeing.
Located in Chinatown, New York, the Museum of Chinese Americans in the United States is a museum dedicated to displaying the history of Chinese Americans with photographs and objects. The museum was built in 1980, when the building was relatively simple, and moved to the site in 2009. The building was designed by Ms. Lin Hang, the designer who designed the Vietnam War Monument, and has Chinese characteristics. The museum is visited free of charge every Thursday.
The United States is one of the countries with the largest number of Chinese people in the world. It is also the country where Chinese people choose to emigrate most. The Chinese culture here is very profound. You can go to this museum to experience different Chinese customs.
