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 cultural 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, 41,000+ photographs, 38 meters of textual records, 650 oral history recordings, and 156 film reels of historically and culturally significant items. With the addition of family and community stories every year, we ensure the legacies of people of Japanese ancestry in Canada live on into the future.
