A mock-up of the entrance of the new Portland Chinatown Museum.

Portland Chinatown History Foundation‘s acclaimed “Beyond the Gate: A Tale of Portland’s Historic Chinatowns” exhibition will reopen in the spring of 2018, thanks in part to a $40,000 grant from the Cultural Trust.

“Beyond the Gate” was first presented by the Oregon Historical Society to a record breaking audience in spring of 2016. At its close, the Oregon Historical Society donated the exhibition to the Portland Chinatown History Foundation for installation in Chinatown.

A beautiful new permanent 2,500 square foot Chinatown exhibition will include many of the same objects, a laundry vignette, newly fabricated panels, and professional museum lighting, cases and AV equipment.
