The Pacific Asia Museum "preserves, presents and interprets to the public the arts and cultures of the Pacific and Asian peoples." Located in an interesting building that is a replica of a Chinese Treasure House with a lovely courtyard garden, the museum galleries are complimented by its research library and excellent book store. Family free days on the third Saturday of the month offer free programs for children and families. In the past, the Korean Celebration included workshops in fan making, chima chogoi pagi (paper folding), and kite making, and traditional food was served. Information about lectures, authors evenings, classes, and collection outreach is available to museum members through the newsletter. This is a good museum to join if you are interested in the broad spectrum of Asian cultures.
