Museum of Chinese in America
MOCA preserves, presents, and explores the diverse history, heritage, and culture of people of Chinese descent in the United States.
A Contemporary Space, A Profound History. In a striking space designed by acclaimed artist Maya Lin, the Museum of Chinese in America is an ideal event and meeting venue. Located at the cross-section of Chinatown, Little Italy and Soho, the Museum bridges a thoughtful, modern aesthetic with an industrial, historical feel. Residing in a former machine works warehouse, the Museum is an intimate and unique setting for any event. The lobby and exhibit space feature bronze tiles, darkened fir floors, and reclaimed lumber. The permanent collection surrounds a pre-existing inner courtyard deliberately left raw to symbolize how much of our past we bring to our present. The Museum of Chinese in America engages with 160 years of Chinese American history through innovative exhibitions, educational and cultural programs. Through this history, we promote dialogue and understanding among people of all cultural backgrounds. Private events have total access to our thought-provoking permanent collection and exhibits. Meetings and events can be customized to include any or all of the Museum’s spaces so your guests can have a truly unforgettable experience.
