Beautiful building inside and out. The roof looked like there were some plants growing out of it, might be in need of some maintenance. It was very quiet when we were there and the museum was closed.

We walked here to day on our walking tour of Chinatown. The building is striking from the outside and worth walking around. Inside, there was an arts and crafts fair which we paid $5 each to get into. Would do that again but we were unable to see any of the Chinese museum. Still, the building is beautiful!

The Chinese Cultural Centre is built by hiring engineers from China, copying as much as they could based on the Beijing's Temple of Heaven.

Upon entering the structure, you'll be amazed by the intricate hand painting of the ceiling and the 4 pillars, filled with a lot of real gold leaf.

This building is very busy, with weekly bookings of the many classrooms, Chinese library, and the gym is fully utilized for sports events, banquets, and seminars and shows. Basement consists of a mini museum and a large Chinese restaurant.

For free walking tour of Chinatown, including the Cultural Centre, simply call the following number:

It's definitely worth a visit.

We visited this neat centre as a family with our 3 children. We all enjoyed the displays and only wished there was more on display since we were having a great time!
