The SF Korean American Museum is the result of grassroots efforts to establish an archive that will eventually collect and house all available items that relate to Korean immigrants experience in and around San Francisco and the Bay Area.
As history tells us, San Francisco was the port city where the first Korean diplomatic delegates to the US arrived, stayed, and established themselves, leaving their footprints. Not too many people are aware of this piece of history, and the memories of its significance are fading with the immigrant population becoming more and more rooted in this country. We the Committee on the SF Korean American Museum would like to ask you to join us in our endeavor to pass down our Korean heritage to the generations to come through this Korean heritage museum of the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.
