The permanent exhibits will be installed by the end of March 2017

The Topaz Museum will open soon.

The Topaz Museum Board  received a  Japanese American Confinement Sites grant to manufacture and install the permanent exhibits for the Topaz Museum which is located at 55 West Main in Delta, Utah, 16 miles from the original site of Topaz. Photographs, artifacts, and displays depicting the Topaz internment experience will inform and educate visitors. Further, former internees will take comfort in the fact that the hardships they endured will not be forgotten.

Construction on the Topaz Museum began on June 2013 and was finished in May 2014.  The museum opened in January 2015 with a show of artwork done in Topaz by internees.  In 2017 the full exhibits that have been designed by West Office Exhibition Design in Oakland, CA will be installed.  The exhibits will include a 20' x 20' barrack room, an art gallery, displays about camp life, a model of the camp, and text about the Constitutional issues of internment.
