“Nice little gem in Butte!”
Review of The Mai Wah

The Mai Wah
Reviewed 27 June 2012

We read about it in our tourbook and decided to visit. What a pleasant surprise for us to visit this small museum. It's facinating to learn about the Chinese immigrants and their lives in Butte in the early 20th century. The museum is located in the original noodle shop operated by a Chinese family. They just aquired many authetic furnitures and items of that period. It reminded us of the Tenement museum in NYC, in a smaller scale of course. The staff was very friendly and answered our many questions. If you happened to drive by Butte, I'd recommend you to visit this charming museum.
