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.
The Topaz Museum will preserve the history of Topaz. The Foundation owns 634 acres of the Topaz site, which has mostly remained undisturbed since the camp was dismantled after it closed in 1945. Visitors to the site can still see the roads, outlines of barracks and even an occasional garden which internees created to brighten their bleak surroundings. Concrete foundations of mess halls and latrines remain and one can find various artifacts of daily internment life buried in the dusty desert. If you visit, please do not collect artifacts.
