20% Member Discount for 8 days!
Friday, May 8 – Friday, May 15
Throughout these challenging times, JANM Members have continued to show immense generosity and dedication to our mission. Thank you for allowing us to continue our work.
Traditionally, our Member Appreciation Days represent a partnership between JANM and other fantastic Southern California museums to offer free reciprocal admission and 20% store discounts to our collective membership. While we and our partner institutions remain closed to the public due to Safer at Home orders, we’re pleased to offer the 20% discount to JANM Members through our online store—for an extra 5 days!

Members Only Learning at Lunch: Masumoto Family Farm
Bring your brown bag lunch and join us as we explore connections between Japanese American experiences and California farming. Special guest Nikiko Masumoto will bring objects from the Masumoto Family Farm, share stories of learning to work with her jiichan’s tools, and pose questions about how the objects that tie us to the land inform how we construct meaning through food.
JANM Collections staff will also show artifacts and archival material from the permanent collection that relate to Japanese American contributions to the agriculture industry.
Space is limited. RSVP by March 3 using the link below. You can also contact email@example.com or 213.830.5646.
