Opening June 17, 2021
This new long term gallery at Washington State History Museum will explore the intergenerational impacts and legacy of the incarceration of people of Japanese ethnicity during WWII as a result of Executive Order 9066.
In this gallery, visitors will experience history through photographs, art, letters, and more. A significant part of this exhibition has been sourced by working with individuals and families who were directly impacted by this history, including camp survivors. The Historical Society continues to accept these materials for future additions to exhibition and educational materials.
