Just in time for Chinese New Year, the Tulare County History of Farm Labor & Agriculture Museum will open its newest exhibit, “Happiness, Prosperity, Longevity: Chinese Experiences in Tulare County.”
A reception will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at the museum in Mooney Grove Park in Visalia. The public is invited.
“This museum is a bit different from most agricultural museums in that it focuses on the people and the contributions that these cultural groups have made to agriculture in Tulare County, rather than solely farming equipment,” said Amy King, Tulare County Museum curator.
The exhibit includes artifacts from the area Chinese community and photos that bring to life their family histories, what brought them to the Central Valley, their contributions to the culture of Tulare County, and a video of people sharing their family histories.
It will be open through the end of 2017.
