The Laogai Museum is the first Museum in the country that addresses human right in China directly. It preserves the memory of the Laogai?s victims and educates the public about the brutalities that were committed by the Communist regime in China.

One of the newest Museum in the United States, it was officially opened on April 7, 2011. It serves to be a magnificent work of art as well as a resource center for information about the forced Laogai Labor prison camp system. The Museum was founded by Harry Wu, one of the people who served many years in prisons. At only 23 years old, he was put to prison for his criticisms on the communist party.

The Museum features items that were donated by the survivors of Laogai include museum documents, displays of Laogai-related materials, photographs, uniforms, government documents, and some products that were manufactured by prisoners like tea bags, Christmas lights, and plastic flowers. A huge archive of prison-made products as well as testimonies from the victims are also available for viewing.
