“If in Oroville Check it Out”
Review of Chinese Temple

Chinese Temple
Ranked #6 of 26 things to do in Oroville
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 November 2012

This is an unusual museum with a glimpse into Oroville's more interesting past. I can't recommend Oroville as a destination now, but if you find that you need respite from a drive on the way somewhere else, I highly recommend stopping by.

We were extremely pleased with the way the Temple has be kept up thru the years and the history was just awesome not only for the grandchildren to read about but for the adults.

We accidentally discovered this temple and museum in Oroville while driving down the 70 from Chico. It is a little hidden gem with a Temple, a museum of local Chinese immigrant history and a small garden. There is an excellent display of Chinese puppets and fabrics that children would love and it is small enough to avoid them getting bored. There is also a nice walk along the river bank outside the museum.
(Other great Chinese historical places are the Temples in Waverly Street, San Francisco, and the town of Locke on the American River).
