The Museum of Chinese in America (traditional Chinese: 美國華人博物館; simplified Chinese: 美国华人博物馆; pinyin: Měiguó Huárén Bówùguǎn; Jyutping: Mei5gwok3 Waa4jan4 Bok3mat6gun2; abbreviated MOCA) is a museum in New York City which exhibits Chinese American history.  Founded in 1980 in Manhattan’s Chinatown (紐約華埠), the museum began as the New York Chinatown History Project by historian John Kuo Wei Tchen and community resident and activist Charles Laiand to promote a better understanding of the Chinese American experience and to address the concern that “the memories and experiences of aging older generations would perish without oral history, photo documentation, research and collecting efforts.”
