The Museum began as a community-based organization founded in 1980 as the New York Chinatown History Project by historian John Kuo Wei Tchen and community resident/activist Charles Lai. It was created to develop a better understanding of our Chinese American history and community and to respond to the concern that the memories and experiences of aging older generations would perish without oral history, photo documentation, research and collecting efforts.

"Our work to preserve and present the history and culture of Chinese in America has also grown and also positioned us to be a national home for the precious stories of our diverse communities make us a model among interactive museums.
