The SDCHM permanent collection consists of artifacts that represent Chinese history, art, and culture, and which also tell the stories of Chinese American experiences. We exhibit changing selections of fine art, folk art, decorative arts, clothing, household and commercial goods, archeological finds, and mementos of the Chinese community of San Diego.
The SDCHM does not provide artifact appraisal services. You may find a professional appraiser through the American Society of Appraisers.
