Yakima Valley Museum

Special Exhibitions
The Special Exhibition Galleries feature changing exhibits based on objects from our own collection, private collections, or other museums. This area is used for just one exhibition or subdivided into as many as three distinct areas, each dealing with a separate topic. At least one special exhibition is available in addition to the core exhibition in the rest of the museum.

Land of Joy and Sorrow: Japanese Pioneers of the Yakima Valley
This exhibition traces the story of the Japanese families who settled in the Yakima Valley and made a new life in a new land. It also chronicles the forced relocation of these families to Heart Mountain, Wyoming in 1942, and their re-emergence as a community in the Yakima Valley after World War II.
