Family Discovery Gallery

GENERAL INFO

Location/Dates:

The Autry in Griffith Park
Ongoing Exhibition

The Family Discovery Gallery is a unique space within the museum where children (and adults) encounter history with a fully hands-on experience. The immersive environment encourages visitors to touch, play, and experience the life of a Chinese American family in the 1930s. The gallery examines the history of the See family, from patriarch Fong See's arrival in California in the 1871 through his great-great-grandchild, author Lisa See. The gallery is divided into three sections, each representing a portion of the See family's world in the 1937: their home in Hancock Park, the Dragon's Den Restaurant, and the F. Suie One Antique and Curio Company, the latter two located in Los Angeles' Old Chinatown.
