This is a small museum located in the International District of Seattle. Comparable to the Chinatown Heritage Center in Singapore, this museum tells the story not only of Chinese, but also other Asian American immigrants which came across the oceans in search of a better life.
I would strongly advise any visitor to join one of the guided tours not only to be able to fully appreciate what this center can impart, but you’ll be able to access certain areas, normally off limits to the regular tourist. During my visit, I was fortunate enough that the tour was led by Mike, who if I’m not mistaken was a nephew of Wing Luke himself.
Take note that the places visited are not recreations, but actual preserved locations – such as an old Chinese general store, an old hotel/boarding house and family association headquarters.
