Grand Opening December 2018

An Expanded Permanent Version of

Beyond the Gate: A Tale of Portland’s Historic Chinatowns


Beyond the Gate was created as a temporary exhibit for the Oregon Historical Society by Dr. Jacqueline Peterson-Loomis with the help of the Portland Chinatown History Foundation. It was presented for three months in spring, 2016 and then dismantled. We are deeply grateful to the Oregon Historical Society for allowing the Foundation to bring the Chinatown community’s story home.

MADE IN CHINATOWN, USA: PORTLAND

A collection of photographs documenting the complexity, vibrancy, beauty, and pride of Chinatown and its people by Portland Chinatown Museum's first Artist in Residence, Dean Wong.

A nationally acclaimed photographer, Dean Wong, is a second-generation Chinese American born and raised in Seattle's Chinatown-International District. His book Seeing the Light: Four Decades in Chinatown was praised by the New York Times as an "eloquent documentation of complex and evolving communities."
