Museum of Chinese in America, New York City

moca1moca2Founded in 1980, the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) is dedicated to preserving and presenting the history, heritage, culture and diverse experiences of people of Chinese descent in the United States.  It is a national home for the precious narratives of diverse Chinese American communities, and strives to be a model among interactive museums.

Central to its mission is its goal to make Chinese American history accessible to the general public, ranging from scholars to young children, from community members to international tourists.  Through its thought-provoking work, the Museum not only encourages the understanding and appreciation of Chinese American arts, culture and history, but also informs, educates and engages visitors about Chinese American history that is in the making.

The Museum promotes dialogue and understanding among people of all cultural backgrounds, bringing 160 years of Chinese American history to vivid life through its innovative exhibitions, educational and cultural programs.

Recognizing that PLCT’s own vision found absolute expression in MOCA, we have made significant contributions to this outstanding museum, helping it to continue its mission of bringing to life the multiple journeys, memories and contributions of the past and present of our Chinese American legacy.
