The SDCHM will celebrate this important anniversary with online public programming, featuring a virtual tour of our revamped permanent exhibition.


On January 13, 1996, the SDCHM opened its doors to the public at 404 Third Avenue, ten years after having incorporated as the Chinese Historical Society of Greater San Diego and Baja California (in 1986).  To commemorate this important anniversary, the San Diego Chinese Historical Society and Museum invites the public to participate in a virtual celebration on 01/30/2021, featuring a tour of the Museum's revamped permanent exhibition.  Please register to attend via Zoom, in a meeting room courtesy of SDSU Chinese Cultural Center: https://sdsu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0rfuqurjwrGNI_D1WZl1Io9grw2hCCFq-S.  After you register, you will receive an email with a customized link and password that you can use to access the event on January 30 at 10 a.m.

Here are some highlights of the morning's agenda:

  • Inauguration (pianist 郎朗 Lang Lang and pipa player 吳蠻 Wu Man)
  • Memories from early years of the SDCHM (Tom Hom, Ron Roberts, and Dr. Shu Chien)
  • Anniversary Auction and Opportunity Drawing winners announcement (Dolly Woo and Diana Marjip Chuh)
  • First look docent-led virtual tour of the SDCHM Mission permanent exhibition (Robert Stein, Lily Birmingham, and Michael Yee)

In connection with our Anniversary Celebration, we are holding an online silent auction (opening 01/18 at 8 a.m. and closing on 01/30 at 11 a.m.).

The crowning item is a one-week rental of a luxury log vacation home in serene Lions Bay, a village approx 20 miles north of Vancouver, B.C., Canada. This 5,000-sq-ft, 5-bedroom and 4-1/2 bath house sleeps up to 12, and has a jacuzzi on a large deck. Sign up at https://charityauctionstoday.com/auctions/2021-annual-gala--19974 to bid.  We will announce the winners as part of our anniversary celebration on January 30th.

We are excited to celebrate our 25th (and 35th) anniversaries with you on January 30th!
