NVC Hall Tour

The NVC Memorial Hall has served the Japanese American community since the 1950’s. It has always been thought to be a “living museum”, honoring the World War II Nisei Veterans.

Visitors can go through a self-guided tour of the hall, or they can arrange for a private tour. Most tours take between 60-90 minutes. There is no fee, and they are led by volunteer docents.

The tour includes information on the following displays:

  • Pre-War: The Beginning
  • The Incarceration Experience: The Forced Confinement Exhibit
  • The Medal of Honor Room: The Military Museum
  • Post War: Returning from War, Formation of the NVC, and Building the Hall
  • The Memorial Wall: Honoring the Veterans and WWII Incarcerees
