About the Blog

Welcome to 1st & Central, the official blog for the Japanese American National Museum!

Visit our blog for news & information about the museum, the work we do, and our communities. In addition to writing about our exhibitions & programs, we’ll be sharing about the other work we do—our collections & resources, media productions, education programs, web projects, and more. Plus, we’ll be posting some behind-the-scenes stuff and introduce you to our staff & volunteers.

Posts on this blog will come from various staff from across the museum…maybe some in the future from volunteers, Board members, and even from some of our members and supporters.

Special thanks to Scott Brown, Koji Sakai, Geoff Jost, Brian De Guzman, and Lisa Sasaki for their roles in getting this started!
