The Museum of Chinese in America (website) is a Museum (Cultural) in New York.
Wikipedia excerpt:
The Museum of Chinese in America (traditional Chinese: 美國華人博物館; pinyin: Měiguó Huárén Bówùguǎn; abbreviated MOCA) is a museum in New York City which exhibits Chinese American history. Founded in 1980 in New York City's Chinatown, the museum began as the New York Chinatown History Project by historian John Kuo Wei Tchen and community resident and activist Charles Laiand to promote a better understanding of Chinese American history and to address the concern that "the memories and experiences of aging older generations would perish without oral history, photo documentation, research and collecting efforts." In 2005, the museum was among 406 New York City arts and social service institutions to receive part of a $20 million grant from the Carnegie Corporation, which was made possible through a donation by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.

We don't have any current exhibitions on file, most likely because we're still collecting listings.

In the meantime, check out the Museum of Chinese in America homepage or our exhibitions list for N.Y.-wide exhibits.
