The Topaz Museum Board intends to establish a permanent Museum 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, it is hoped that former internees and their families will experience a strong emotional connection to the Museum and will be able to take comfort in the fact that the hardships they endured will not be forgotten.
Construction on the Topaz Museum will begin in June 2013. The building will be completed in December 2013 and will be ready for the installation of the Museum exhibit being designed by West Office Exhibition Design in Oakland, CA. The exhibits will include a 20' x 20' barrack, an art gallery, displays about camp life, a model of the camp, and discussions about the Constitutional issues of internment.
