The Wing Luke Museum, the only Pan-Asian Pacific American Museum in the U.S, was established in the late 1960’s to present the history, culture and important issues of the Asian-American community. The historic East Kong Yick Building in Seattle’s Chinatown/international district is the new home of the museum, replacing its original 10,000 sq. ft. location. The renovation resulted in 40,000 sq. ft. of state-of-the art space for community gatherings and exhibitions, art shows, curatorial work, museum artifacts, and space for mixed use commercial tenants such as coffee and book shops. The museum plays a central role in the revival of the surrounding neighborhood, and continues to be on the forefront of Asian-American and Asian Pacific culture, art, and history.
