California Museum presents:

Uprooted! Japanese Americans During World War II

The California Museum’s longest running exhibit surveys a century of Japanese American history in California through the personal stories of formerly incarcerated Californians.

Although Japanese immigrants and their American-born children established businesses, built thriving communities and contributed to the state’s prosperity, they began to face hostility and discrimination following the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

California Museum presents:

Kokoro: The Story of Sacramento’s Lost Japantown

Encore Presentation: January 16 - March 11, 2018

Back by popular demand!

This encore presentation commemorates the anniversary of Executive Order 9066, the presidential decree signed on February 19, 1942 that led to the unconstitutional incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans.

This exhibit features rare family photographs from local community members.  The exhibit documents the memories of the once-thriving downtown community that was devastated by the removal of the Japanese Americans during WWII and again by the redevelopment in the 1950s.
