Looking through the opening pages of this website, one is immediately impressed by the striking beauty of the Japanese American National Museum’s Pavilion as well as the enduring charm of the Museum’s Historic Building. These buildings stand as landmarks to the tradition and history of the Japanese American community as well as the expectation and promise of the future.
The beauty of the National Museum rests not only in its award-winning design and style, but in the warmth and beauty of its heart. The heart of the Museum is found in its volunteers. Here you will find a warm and varied community of men and women, young and old, who share a commitment to the Museum and its mission. The Museum exists to promote understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity through the preservation and sharing of the Japanese American experience.
We would like to extend a personal invitation to you to step into this worthwhile tradition of service. As you do so I believe that you will gain an even greater appreciation for our community as it exists within the broader tapestry of cultures and peoples that make up our nation.
