The exhibition Community of Courage; A Japanese American Story was a joint effort by the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park and the University of Washington's Museology Graduate program.The exhibition runs until the end of September.

The exhibit focuses on the Bainbridge Island Japanese American community. This community was the first group of Japanese Americans to be interned shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Visitors will learn about their story and be encouraged to visit the Japanese American memorial located at Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge Island. That memorial commemorates those residents who were relocated during WWII.
