About Japanese American National Museum

The Japanese American National Museum is a museum of the history, culture and heritage of Japanese Americans.

Whilst it has several temporary and travelling exhibits, the main exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum is called "Common Ground". This tells the story of 130 years of the history, from the treatment of Japanese Americans during World War II back to the days of early immigration.

From objects and artefacts to photos, documents and videos, the Japanese American National Museum displays an interesting collection.
