An Exhibit Filled With Cultural History.
The Chicago History Museum boasts over 22 million artifacts that can fully encompass the visitor into not only Chicago’s rich cultural history but also the United States as a whole. The exhibits focus on what it was like living, working and governing the Chicago metropolitan area as well as the art, literature and notable individuals in Chicago’s history.
A new exhibit to the Chicago History Museum is not only educating visitors on the rich Chinese culture located in Chicago, it is also changing the way we experience museums. The exhibit is called My Chinatown and it focuses on real stories from those who still live in Chinatown today. It also highlights the plights of the Chinese immigrants who moved to Chicago in the late 1800s. What is fascinating about this new exhibit is it is the first multimedia exhibit to ever be featured at the Chicago History Museum! This exhibit will allow the visitor to really feel like they are part of this Chinese culture by allowing them to experience the sights and the sounds of Chicago’s Chinatown.
