The Mai Wah Museum occupies two historic buildings in Butte's Chinatown. Exhibits include

  • The Butte Chinese Experience: Overview of life in this ethnic enclave of 1870s-1930s Butte.
  • Digging Butte's Chinatown: artifacts from the 2007 archaeological dig across the street from the Mai Wah.
  • Wah Chong Tai Mercantile: 2,500 original artifacts make you feel as if you are in the original general store.
  • The Chinn Family Story: Life and times of the extended family of Albert Chinn, owners, managers, and residents here from 1899 until the 1950s.
  • Mai Wah Noodle Parlor: a feeling for a 1920s Chinese restaurant in Butte.
  • The Cheater Story: come see for yourself!
