Join the Chinese Historical & Cultural Project (CHCP) and History San Jose (HSJ) in celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Chinese American Historical Museum. The Chinese American Historical Museum (CAHM) is a replica of the 1888 Ng Shing Gung Temple that used to be located in the heart of Downtown San Jose. Within its walls are exhibits displaying items of historical and cultural significance, and it is a place we can all visit to learn about the history of the Chinese community in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area. We will debut exciting upgrades to our museum: our new Digital Timeline and QR code-driven exhibits, created in partnership with Stanford University's Department of Anthropology. As part of our day of celebration, city officials will acknowledge the service performed by CHCP and HSJ. Then we will honor special awardees Dr. Barbara Voss, Associate Professor in Archaeology, Stanford University, and Historian and Author Connie Young Yu for their continued community service. Following we will have exciting live stage performances, from dancers to singers to martial arts! And we didn't forget your little ones. We will have games, crafts and even a selfie station where you can dress yourself up in traditional Chinese costumes. Best of all, it is a FREE event!
