Dusted Off: Recent Acquisitions

New Exhibit!

When camp closed in November 1945, the government moved quickly to erase the Heart Mountain camp from the landscape. Today, the memory of camp lives on through physical items that were created, used, and saved by the 14,000 Japanese Americans incarcerated here and the white staff employed by the War Relocation Authority. The staff at Heart Mountain Interpretive Center works to unlock the stories contained in each artifact. The items in this exhibit were collected within the past two years, and represent only a fraction of the Heart Mountain collection.

Opens Wednesday, November 17
