Japanese American National Museum

Japanese American National Museum

Rotating exhibits display numerous elements of Japanese life and art, both past and present. The permanent exhibition, "Common Ground: The Heart of Community," incorporates hundreds of objects, documents and photographs to chronicle 130 years of Japanese American history, beginning with the early days of the Issei pioneers through the World War II incarceration to the present. Among the notable artifacts on display is a Heart Mountain barracks, an original structure saved and preserved from the concentration camp in Wyoming. 

We hope you enjoy our work.
