Permanent Exhibition

Topaz Museum

Permanent Exhibition

Reflect on the mass internment of Japanese citizens during WWII.

West Office is currently designing exhibits for The Topaz Museum. Exhibits will increase awareness of a painful, important, yet little known chapter in American history. They will inform visitors of the events that took place before, during and after 11,000 Japanese Americans were held in an internment camp, called Topaz, just a few miles from Delta, Utah.

Artifacts from the Topaz Museum collection will be displayed and interpreted, offering opportunities for learning and reflection. Visitors will be challenged to consider what happened at Topaz, and why it matters to all of us, as they come to understand the importance and value of their constitutional rights and civil liberties.
