Thanks to the support of nearly 60,000 Members and Donors, the Japanese American National Museum has built a world-class institution, accredited by the American Association of Museums and an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. Our Members represent many different ethnic backgrounds and come from every state in America and 17 countries around the world.
Membership in the National Museum not only provides numerous benefits, but also supports our historically important mission. We invite you to become a new Member, renew your Membership, or share the National Museum with a friend or loved one by giving a Gift Membership today!
As a privately funded nonprofit institution, the Japanese American National Museum must rely on the generosity of its friends and supporters to meet the enormous cost of providing programs and services, year-round, to hundreds of thousands of local, national, and international visitors.
A gift in support of the Japanese American National Museum will ensure that the Museum is able to continue its tradition of excellence in producing exhibitions, public programs, publications and educational materials to preserve, interpret and share the experiences of Japanese Americans.
On-line donations may be made toward General Support, or in support of the Museum’s exhibitions, its Arts programs and special projects, School Programs, or the general Education Fund.
