TAASA IN VICTORIA Visit to Chinese Museum 22 March 2014 TAASA members and guests took part in a guided tour of Melbourne’s Chinese Museum. Off one of Melbourne’s laneways in the heart of Chinatown, the oldest area of continuous Chinese settlement in the western world, the museum preserves, collects and researches the history and culture of the Chinese and their descendants in Australia. The tour brought to light the reality of life of Victoria’s Chinese community during the gold rush of the 19th century and later. Members enjoyed lunch at the nearby Hutong Dumpling Bar, famed for its soupfilled dumplings, xiao long bao. – TAASA Review June 2014
