A $9.00 value - Included with your Go Los Angeles Card!
Located in the heart of downtown LA’s Little Tokyo Historic District, the Japanese American National Museum is nationally and internationally recognized for its commitment to explore the meaning of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity by sharing the Japanese American experience. Its ongoing core exhibition, Common Ground: The Heart of Community, chronicles over 150 years of Japanese American history from the early days of the Issei (first-generation) pioneers through the WWII incarceration to the present. The National Museum also presents art and cultural exhibitions, dynamic public programs, an award-winning Museum Store, and the Hirasaki National Resource Center, a self-directed educational experience connecting visitors with the Museum’s wealth of resources documenting Japanese American culture.
