The Portland Chinatown Museum is Oregon’s first museum about Chinese American history, art, and culture. Opened in 2018 in an historic building at NW Third Avenue and Davis Street, the Museum honors Portland Chinatown’s past, celebrates its present, and is helping to create its future. The permanent exhibition gallery features a 2,400 square foot exhibition Beyond the Gate: A Tale of Portland’s Historic Chinatowns, and two front temporary galleries serve as a venue for the work of contemporary Asian American artists in all media and as the site for storytelling about the immigrant experience, film series, lectures, and other public programs. The Portland Chinatown Museum is operated by the Portland Chinatown History Foundation, founded in 2014 by a group of Chinese American elders with deep roots in Portland’s Chinatown.
The Portland Chinatown Museum has an opening for a part-time Visitor Services and Operations Associate to support the Museum’s daily operations and visitor experience.
