San Diego Chinese Historical Museum 圣地亚哥中华历史博物馆

The Mission Building
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!

Court friendly.

Mission Statement

SDCHM’s mission is to create a deeper understanding of China and Chinese America through programs in education, culture and art in the belief that cross-cultural understanding strengthens our diverse San Diego community. Located in the heart of San Diego’s downtown Asian Pacific Historic District, SDCHM is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with special events, exhibitions, and programs.


Established in 1996, the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum (SDCHM) is one of America’s foremost institutions dedicated to sharing the Chinese American experience, and to promoting Chinese art and culture. In twenty years as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, SDCHM has transformed a historic, abandoned building in what was once San Diego’s Chinatown into a state-of-the-art multi-site museum that plays a critical role in the cultural life of the San Diego community.
