Chinese Temple
Ranked #3 of 28 things to do in Oroville
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 November 2016

While not knowing anything about Chinese culture learned a lot about how they helped Oroville grow and what it was like for them and the people of Oroville in this period of time...
Very informative docents....

This site is an excellent learning experience about Chinese culture in North-eastern California. Beautiful artifacts, amazing architecture, and important history.

It's decently maintained for a small town. With passionate and respectful docent. Enough original stuff. Nice courtyard.

This museum beats major museums I saw in Indonesia's or most museums in Asia in terms of information. Could use some Chinese translation and try attract Chinese tourists.

Worth it if you have the time, very beautiful and historic presentation of the Chinese's impact on California during the gold rush era.
