The Chinese have been in Oroville since the early 1900's and helped build it during the gold rush. The temple is a tribute to them and is a must see if you are ever in our town. The Chinese culture is very important

Our family visited during Feather Fiesta Days in May. They had live performances that were colorful and well corroborated. Well worth the small admission of $5. There was a lot of history here and my children learned while having fun.

It's decently maintained for a small town. With passionate and respectful docent. Enough original stuff. Nice courtyard. This museum beats major museums I saw in Indonesia's or most museums in Asia in terms of information. Could use some Chinese translation and try attract Chinese tourists.
