A museum dedicated to the Chinese American experience and history.
Located inside the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument across from Union Station. CAM is housed inside the oldest surviving Chinese buildings located in the City, namely the Garnier Building (423 North Los Angeles Street) and an adjacent structure (425 North Los Angeles Street). Erected exclusively for Chinese use in the 1890s, these multi-story brick structures had housed shops, schools, temples, churches, and businesses as well as dances and theatrical performances during their heyday between the 1890s and 1940s. Because the Garnier Building was once regarded as the unofficial "city hall" of Los Angeles' Chinese community, it is now a perfect cultural symbol for housing an institution dedicated to the Chinese American experience.
