Chinese-American Museum of Chicago

Raymond B. & Jean T. Lee Center

The mission of the Chinese-American Museum of Chicago (CAMOC) is to promote the culture and history––through exhibitions, education, and research––of Chinese-Americans in the Midwest. The museum building, formerly the Quong Yick Co., is located in Chicago's Chinatown, at 238 West 23rd Street in Chicago. The Museum opened to the public on May 21, 2005. After a devastating fire in September of 2008, the Museum was closed for renovation and reopened in 2010.

CAMOC is governed by the Board of Directors of the Chinatown Museum Foundation (CMF), a 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation located in Chicago, Illinois.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Chicago Community Trust, the Chinese-American Museum of Chicago is collaborating with the Chicago History Museum to bring its wonderful object theater and 16-minute video My Chinatown to the Chinese-American Museum of Chicago! Hear the stories of the people of Chinatown––their journeys, their customs, their work, their families––from within Chinatowns borders.

CAMOC is adding a special feature to the exhibit: a look at family associations in Chinatown. As an outgrowth of the Chicago Chinatown Centennial Exhibit, we will be highlighting, on a rotating basis, the histories and artifacts of various family associations, including the Lees, the Wongs, and more.

My Chinatown: Stories from Within is now open in the second floor gallery.

Hear the people of Chinatown tell their own stories,  right in the heart of their neighborhood
