They feature different educational classes, public programs, and exhibitions surrounding this topic.

The museum was first founded in Chinatown as a part of the New York Chinatown History Project in the 1980s. It has since moved locations to 215 Centre Street and continues to showcase the lives and history of Chinese Americans. MOCA has more than 65,000 artifacts, photos, art work, and memorabilia to showcase it’s history. This array of archival material shows the personal and exquisite point of views of many Chinese Americans. The Museum of Chinese in America is a great place to learn about history and culture from the diverse lives of Americans.
