San Francisco is home to the largest Chinese enclave outside of Asia. The Chinese Historical Society of America is one of the oldest and largest organizations dedicated to the study, documentation and dissemination of Chinese-American History. The main gallery features an annotated history of Chinese Americans in the US, focusing on the years after the Gold Rush, through the 19th and 20th centuries, up to recent events. Exhibits are bilingual.

Comments about Smart Destinations Chinese Historical Society:

Gem of a museum hidden in Chinatown. The collection isn't vast, but it is informative and worth the climbing the hills to get there. The size makes it perfect for limited attention spans!
