Welcome to Chinese Canadian Museum’s inaugural exhibition – “A Seat at the Table: Chinese Immigration and British Columbia”. This temporary exhibition explores historical and contemporary stories of Chinese Canadians in BC and their struggles for belonging. It looks to food and restaurant culture as an entry point and features stories that reveal the great diversity of immigrant experience and of the communities immigrants develop. Located at the Hon Hsing Building in Vancouvers Chinatown, the building itself is a historic icon built in 1910.
