About Us 日系文化センター・博物館

Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre's mission is to honour, preserve, and share the history and heritage of Japanese Canadians and Japanese culture in Canada.

Since September 22, 2000, the multi-use space, featuring a Japanese Canadian garden located in Burnaby, BC, has offered unique programming, exhibits, and events, as a community place open to all. Within the museum repository we care for 2600+ objects, 47,000+ photographs, 44 meters of textual records, 650+ oral history recordings, and 156 film reels of historically and culturally significant items. Community engagement and best practices ensure the legacies of people of Japanese ancestry in Canada live on into the future.
