The Chinese American Museum of Chicago Presents an All-New Exhibition

The Chinese American Museum of Chicago invites you to a new temporary exhibition, “The Chinese Helped Build the Railroad – The Railroad Helped Build America,” to coincide with the 150th Anniversary of the Golden Spike at Promontory Summit in Utah.

This special presentation will provide a background to Chinese contribution to the building of the Transcontinental Railroad and its impact on Chinese immigration and migration. The bilingual exhibit, which features photographs by Li Ju, pays tribute to the approximately 12,000 Chinese workers who completed the west coast portion of the world’s first Transcontinental Railway.

The mission of CAMOC is to promote the culture and history of Chinese-Americans in the Midwest. “The Chinese Helped Build the Railroad – The Railroad Helped Build America” was organized by the Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Project at Stanford University and Li Ju.

Admission prices will vary; however, museum members may visit the Chinese American Museum of Chicago for free. Group tours must be requested by emailing office@ccamuseum.org. For more information, please visit https://ccamuseum.org. We look forward to seeing you!
