The mission of the Japanese American National Museum is to promote
understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural
diversity by sharing the Japanese American experience.
The Museum shares the story of Japanese Americans because
we honor our nation’s diversity. We believe in the importance of
remembering our history to better guard against the prejudice that
threatens liberty and equality in a democratic society. We strive as a
world-class museum to provide a voice for Japanese Americans and a
forum that enables all people to explore their own heritage and culture.
