We passed thru this place while enroute from Eau Claire Market to Chinatown. The building itself was pretty cool but not a lot to see or do for a Saturday. Just a passing photo op. Not sure why its on TA?

I had the privilege of attending as a vendor at the many markets put on by the Chinese Cultural Centre. I was amazed at the diversity of the activities that were offered both free and a nominal cost. There were stage events, information all through out the centre and ongoing (hands-on) cultural activities. The Chinese Cultural Centre makes a real effort to communicate and involve the Asian community and more importantly the non-Asian community to bridge the understanding between East and West. It was so rewarding to feel how welcoming the custodians of this amazing centre were to outsiders like myself and my son.

You can go and have the picture in there of the building, but I think thats all, The people in there are not much friendly with the tourists, don't expect anything of them. Then go to chinatown two blocks from there if you want.

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.
