This place is very good,I m very happy..hahaha
This museum, housed in a former U.S. Sub-Mint (a satellite location for the old 5th & Mission Mint), is tucked away in the labyrinth of Chinatown and overshadowed by other Asian-associated museums that are much better endowed financially. When I visited (with a walking group), the exhibit was a photo essay on several Chinese-American youths' pilgrimage back to the Chinese village of their ancestors. These young adults had some thought-provoking experiences. The wonderful old docent who is there 3 days a week was quite interesting by himself. The museum is sponsored by East-West Bank who used to maintain a website on their behalf -- it no longer exists. I understand a lot of financial support has also dried up for this establishment, which is a shame, because I heard about some fabulous previous exhibits they had. Oh, they also display some of the Mint history. And it's FREE. Check it out and support this little neglected gem.
It's OK. Overall, it's still comfortable and fun.
The Pacific Heritage Museum in San Francisco is very good. It's surrounded by a lot of traditional objects and decorations.
Many of the exhibits inside can be visited, which is a good opportunity to visit.
