Visited The Topaz Museum on Saturday March 17th. Very impressed with this museum located in such a small town. The employees and curators of the Museum obviously have a lot of passion regarding the story of the Japanese Americans who were held in internment camps....More

This is one of the best WWII Incarceration Camp museums in the U.S. Actually President Harry Truman referred to them as "Concentration Camps." The origins of this museum began as a local High School project with many following years of fundraising. The Museum Foundation also...More
