AAPI History Museum

AAPI History Museum is coming to Rhode Island soon!

We are very proud to be a recipient of a major grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities to execute the Preliminary Research for Museum of Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders (AAPI) History & Culture. 

We have a team of four persons of outstanding talents to start this preliminary research and will put together prototypes of exhibits to be displayed in September 2023. We will begin with the Chinese American journey to America and the journey of the Cambodian Americans first. 

The Museum has its own website too.

If you are a person of Chinese or Cambodian descent, and you would like to donate an artifact, or lend us your special artifact relating to your culture or history, please contact our Director. If the item is precious to you and you would only like a duplicate to be made, that is perfectly acceptable. 

After the preliminary research for this AAPI history museum, which is a one-year period, we will need to research all the ethnic groups under the AAPI name. If you are person of any of the AAPI descent and would like to share your journey to America with us, please contact our Director. We can arrange to have an interview with you to get your story after our preliminary research. 

Are you a person of AAPI descent and want to share your or your ancestor's unique story, artifact or article from your journey to America, please contact our Director. We would like to include your or your ancestor's unique journey to America into our museum exhibit.
