Join the Chinese Historical and Cultural Project and History San Jose to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Chinese American Historical Museum. The Chinese American Historical Museum is a replica of the 1888 Ng Shing Gung Temple that was originally 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 visitors can learn about the history of the Chinese community in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area. The celebration includes the unveiling of new upgrades such as a new Digital Timeline and QR code-driven exhibits, created in partnership with Stanford University’s Department of Anthropology. Among activities for kids are traditional crafts as well as a traditional Chinese costume selfie station
