  • A beautiful museum that we stumbled across by accident! I'm so glad to have have found it. It houses a very interesting and informative collection showing the history behind Chinese Australians and their journey to Australia and more. Not to mention a giant dragon used at Chinese new Years parades! The staff there were really friendly and knowledgeable to talk to. Overall, it's worth the visit when in Chinatown!
  • I was surprised when I discovered the Chinese Museum down a little Lane off of Chinatown. When I did get a chance to go back I really enjoyed reading all the information and stories. Would like to see more things happening out of there, workshops, performances, activities for the younger generation would be great.
