Japanese American Internment Museum

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Japanese American Internment Museum, also known as the WWII Japanese American Internment Museum and the Jerome-Rohwer Interpretive Museum & Visitor Center, is a history museum in McGehee, Arkansas.[1] The museum features exhibits regarding the area history of Japanese American internment in the 1940s when more than 17,000 Japanese Americans were housed at nearby Rohwer War Relocation Center and Jerome War Relocation Center during World War II. Exhibits include a film, oral histories, photographs, personal artifacts and some art made by internees, as well as changing art exhibitions.[2]

Visitors are encouraged to tour the remains of the Rohwer War Relocation Center, which is located about 17 miles away from the museum. The site includes a memorial, cemetery, interpretive panels and audio kiosks.[3]

The museum opened its doors on April 16, 2013 and is located in the south building of the historic McGehee Railroad Depot.[4] It is one of several Arkansas State University Heritage Sites.[5]

The dedication ceremony for the museum featured the actor, activist, and former camp incarceree George Takei giving a speech; his narration is also featured on a number of the audio displays.[6]
