Uprooted: An American Story
Opens March 11, 2023

This fully rebuilt signature exhibit, based on the long-running “Uprooted! Japanese Americans during WWII,” takes a new look at the wartime mass incarceration and Japanese Americans’ ongoing efforts to safeguard the civil rights of all Americans.

All-new interactive displays, and never-before-exhibited artifacts supplement visitor favorites from the previous installation including a video introduction by George Takei and a replica barracks and guard tower. New features include a theater experience and an AI-based component allowing visitors to hold virtual conversations with three incarceration survivors.
