A set of marbles found in the barren desert. The candid diary of a 19-year-old soldier. A haunting memento from the World Trade Center on 9/11.

The Japanese American National Museum has a treasure of ordinary, yet extraordinary stories in its unique and innovative collection.

Celebrating its 25th Anniversary year, the Museum is pleased to present AMERICAN TAPESTRY: 25 Stories from the Collection, a selection of artifacts, artwork, photographs, oral histories, and more. Some of the items have never before been seen by the public.

American Tapestry presents and intimate look into an ethnic community. At the same time, it celebrates the lives of everyday individual Americans who embody the “We” in “We the People” in the U.S. Constitution. In a democracy, every person counts. The colorful diversity of cultures, peoples, and points of view is what we see today as an American Tapestry.
