The Museum of Chinese America (MOCA) is a hidden gem. Tucked away on Centre Street between Grand and Hester streets in a striking space designed by acclaimed artist Maya Lin, it’s a breath of fresh air in a neighborhood known more for its turn of the century warehouse buildings than cutting edge cultural institutions.
Once inside, the fun begins. With world-class facilities and access to fresh, innovative exhibits and programs, there is something for everyone. You’ll find their core exhibition featuring 160 years of Chinese American history, interactive programs for families, Free Thursday Talks, the signature film series, Chinatown Film Project, and live music evenings titled MOCAMIX.
