 The Our Chinatown Learning Center and Collections Hub is your home for hands-on learning at MOCA!


  • Explore old studio portraits from MOCA’s collection and strike a pose with fun props in our recreated photo corner.
  • Touch a real Singer sewing machine from the 1920s and learn about garment workers in Chinatown.
  • Find a new favorite read in our diverse books reading corner.
  • Enjoy free play with blocks, stuffed toys, and more.
  • And browse MOCA’s Collections Online at your own pace at one of MOCA’s easy access computer terminals.

Don’t forget to join us in the Learning Center every 2nd and 4th Thursday at 4pm for MOCAKIDS: Storytime! For ages 3 – 6, but older and younger siblings are welcome!


The Our Chinatown Learning Center and Collections Hub was designed with families in mind, especially kids ages 0-12 and their caretakers.


MOCA’s Collections Hub is a great resource for visitors of all ages to digitally explore some of the 65,000 artifacts, photos, memorabilia, documents, oral histories, and art work in our collection.
