History

The Museum of Chinese in Stockton (MCS) was established in 2019 as a part of the Confucius Church, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit. The Chinese Benevolent Association of Stockton manages both the Confucius Church and the MCS.

Upon the discovery of many Chinese news articles, photos, artifacts, calligraphy works and documents during the 2009 renovation of the Confucius Church building, a museum concept was formed.

We sincerely thank the Chinese and Stockton communities for their contributions and generous donations of display artifacts, funds, and volunteer work. A plaque acknowledging their support is located in the entrance hall at Confucius Church.
