The Museum

We are the only museum in Canada dedicated to preserving the history of Chinese Canadians in Canada’s Armed Forces. We are located in Vancouver at 555 Columbia St – in a Ming Dynasty styled building – which is part of the Chinese cultural centre complex. Our museum is located on the second floor.

Amongst the glass cases and wall displays, visitors will find a wide range of photographs, documents, and artifacts which help tell the story of Chinese-Canadian soldiers in both world wars, and in conflicts since then.

You can also arrange for a tour of our museum, which can include tours of Chinatown. Contact us at:

Tuesday – Sunday    10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Closed on Mondays and on statutory holidays.

Entrance fee: By donation
