The Japanese American Museum of San Jose (JAMsj) showcases a unique collection of permanent and rotating exhibits chronicling more than a century of Japanese American history. Visitors will learn about early immigration of Japanese to America, their leadership in the agricultural community,  their incarceration during World War II and the challenges they faced, while adapting and contributing to West Coast communities.

In addition, we've recently added this bookstore site featuring products now available online. Please check out our product selection or if you have a chance, come visit our museum and bookstore for the latest exhibits and unique products and gift items.


Your continued support and contributions through donations, membership, and volunteerism empower JAMsj to fulfill its mission to collect, preserve, and share Japanese American art, history, and culture, with a focus on the Greater Bay Area.
