The Mission Building was once a Chinese Community Church where newly immigrated Chinese workers could find a warm bed, hot food, and a place to learn English at the turn of the century. In the 1990s, the building, which had been long abandoned, was slatted for demolition. Local Chinese community member formed the San Diego Chinese Historical Society and saved the building that is now home of the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum.


Welcome Desk Attendants are the face of the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum as the first point of contact for visitors from all over the world. We have three gallery spaces that host rotating art, culture, and historical exhibits that focus on China and Chinese America.

Attendants will be trained in greeting visitors, cash and credit card handling for admission and gift shop sales. Attendants will also facilitate an enjoyable visitor experience to all guests to the Museum.

Attendants will develop public speaking skills, customer service skills, and inventory management skills. We welcome volunteers willing to put their best face forward on behalf of the Museum!
