The Japanese American National Museum offers several revolving exhibitions. You can get the most current list here, but the permanent exhibits include:
- Sadako’s Crane. Sadako Sasaki was only two years old when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, and when she turned 12, she contracted leukemia. One of her hospital roommates told her that whomever folds 1,000 origami cranes gets a wish – and she began the journey of folding 1,300 of them. Unfortunately, Sadako passed away in 1955.
- Common Ground: The Heart of Community. This exhibit displays hundreds of objects, documents and photos that chronicle 130 days of Japanese American history.
