JANM Pavillion



As of December 27, 2021

With the rapidly increasing COVID-19 infection rates in Los Angeles County due to the Omicron variant, the Japanese American National Museum will temporarily close to the public effective immediately. The safety of our community is of paramount importance to us, as is our obligation as a public institution to do our part to support efforts to inhibit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We will continue to monitor public health guidelines and reassess as the situation unfolds.

In the 30 years since JANM first opened its doors, we’ve been sustained and inspired by your support and commitment to the Museum. While our doors are temporarily shuttered, we do hope that you’ll take this opportunity to explore our digital content—our rich collection of life histories and documentaries where Japanese American stories come alive; our archive of letters and documents that preserve this important history; and activities from our Education Unit that can be done at home. We also invite you to join us for upcoming virtual programs. We hope you will continue your journey of learning with us.



Proof of Vaccination Requirement

As required by LA City ordinance, ALL VISITORS age 12 and older will need to show proof of full vaccination or a negative antigen or PCR Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to visiting the museum. Proof of vaccination or negative test may be in a paper or digital format, PLUS a photo ID. The vaccine requirement does not apply to children under 12.  LEARN MORE
