Peering into the Past, Celebrating Canada’s Oldest Chinatown

The Royal BC Museum has unveiled a new Pop-up Exhibit in Fan Tan Alley that recognizes the importance of the Chinese Canadian community in Greater Victoria. The exhibit, which was established in partnership with the Royal BC Museum, Victoria Chinatown Museum Society and the Salient Group, is titled “Peering into the Past: Celebrating Canada’s Oldest Chinatown.”

As its name suggests, the exhibit celebrates Victoria’s Chinatown (the oldest in Canada), and provides a sneak peek of a future regional hub of the recently announced Chinese Canadian Museum.
