Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles Overview

Upright with the mission to share Japanese American history and help visitors to realise the importance of ethnic diversity, The Japanese American National Museum is the largest museum in the US which works to echo the experiences of Americans of Japanese ancestry through programs dedicated to strengthening their community. Apart from the multitude of displays and permanent collections, the museum is quite famous for its varied exhibitions. One of the most popular and must-visit exhibitions is named as Common Ground: The Heart of Community which unravels hundreds of photographs, documents and objects reflecting 130 years of Japanese American History through the second world war confinement to the present.

The museum also in detail presents the memories narrating the repercussion of Japan’s bombing of the Pearl Harbour on the Japanese Americans. The visit to this place is bound to educate and sensitise the visitors with its sincere and thought-provoking collections. Under a Mushroom Cloud: Hiroshima, Nagasaki and the Atomic bomb is another of the culturally important exhibits which you should include in your visit to the museum. Out of the permanent collections contained by this small cultural treasure, the George Hoshida Collection and the Hisako Hibi collection promise the visitors a glance into the mundanity of daily lives in the past. The museum also holds a resource centre providing crucial data to the researchers and students working in the field of Japanese American history. It works on the principle of accessibility and thus remains open for all the visitors to actively engage in the resources to learn, explore and reflect on the past.
