The New Wing Luke Asian Museum Opens Up May 31st

In a completely unrelated news item, if you do have something better to do than staring at Asian Americans who are staring at themselves, you should get on out to the Wing Luke Asian Museum because they've completed the $23.2 million renovation into their new home, which is about 8 times the size of the building where they were housed previously:

The centerpiece of the $23.2 million project is the building itself, the 1910-vintage East Kong Yick Building, financed by 170 Chinese immigrants who pooled their resources to establish a foothold and offer a place where new residents could find a room, a meal and social support. Although museum-goers will be able to wander through a variety of galleries and exhibits, parts of the building will be seen only on guided tours. On these "Historic Immersion Tours," visitors will be transported back to the early 1900s, entering one-room apartments, a hotel manager's office, an imported-foods shop, a communal kitchen and a family-association room where workers relaxed, gambled and paid homage to their ancestors at decorative altars.

Read more about the opening and renovation down at The Seattle Times as well as at the Wing Luke Asian Museum's site.

Update: Also make sure to check out the next issue of Hyphen which will have a story about the new and improved Wing Luke Asian Museum.
