Celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month with the Wing Luke Museum

In honor of Asian Pacific Heritage Month, here’s a reminder to check out a good friend of AAJA Seattle, the Wing Luke Museum. It was an amazing host for AAJA Seattle’ s Lunar New Year fundraiser in 2009!

Besides being an amazing spot to celebrate the new year, the museum is full of exhibits to remind everyone of the rich history of Asian Americans.

Here are a few upcoming events and exhibits to check out:
