ABOUT THE MUSEUM
The Chinese American Museum in Washington, DC (CAMDC) is a bold undertaking, currently underway, to establish a new, national museum to collect, preserve, exhibit, and lead a meaningful, positive dialogue on the Chinese American experience—its history, culture, and contributions to our country and the world.
The Chinese American Museum will serve as a:
– steward and historian of the Chinese American experience
– cultural center (physically and virtually)
– knowledge leader
– champion for a positive discourse on the Chinese American legacy
– central resource for Chinese American stories and information
– highlight shared cultural exchanges between America and China
With our newly acquired building in the heart of Washington, DC, the museum will serve to positively impact people from all backgrounds, across the country and abroad through relevant collections, exhibits, online experiences, educational programs, and events. In addition to offering a high-quality physical museum destination, we strive to be an interactive museum and content source that extends beyond our physical walls to encourage an ongoing conversation and visitor experience.
History, Mission, and Vision
The Chinese American Museum Foundation, a Washington DC based 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was incorporated under the District of Columbia’s Business Organizations Code on June 6, 2017.
The museum’s mission is to advance the understanding, knowledge, and appreciation of the Chinese American experience by highlighting shared cultural exchanges and stories of the spirit, resilience, and contributions of Chinese Americans throughout our past, present, and future.
Our vision is to build a community around a continuous dialogue illustrating how Chinese Americans, culture, contributions, and potential are all an important part of the American fabric. We seek to work with organizations, museums, experts, and leadership across the country to tell the Chinese American story on DC’s national stage.
