The Chen Art Gallery is a nonprofit art museum that houses one of the most important private collections of Chinese art in the United States.
Operated by the T.F. Chen Family Foundation, the museum showcases the collection of world-renowned herbalist and pharmacist Dr. Tei Fu Chen and his family. The gallery displays an impressive array of over 1,000 artifacts spanning 5000 years of Chinese history, from the earliest Neolithic-era pottery to Ming and Qing imperial palace collections, including a display of a Qing imperial throne room, a Ming dynasty bedroom, delicate silk textiles and scroll paintings. Our private tour will provide an opportunity to learn more about Chinese history and culture and to appreciate the beauty of the pieces in the collection. The museum has been described as a hidden gem with a spectacular collection. Children under 10 are not permitted inside the museum. RSVP by Monday, Oct. 14.
