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.
