Learn about the Japanese American World War II experience during 3rd Thursday at Albuquerque Museum


Every third Thursday of the month, the Albuquerque Museum hosts a free event including live music, performance, hands-on activities for children, gallery exhibits, and much more. This month’s event will focus on the New Mexico Japanese American Citizen League and their exhibition “Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience”.

This free, after-hours event will take place from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and will begin with a stroll through a mini fall festival featuring arts and crafts booths. Readings will be held by local authors Cynthia Grady and Mary Oishi.

A traditional Japenese-style line dancing class will follow. Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience drumming with Bushido Kenkyukai Taiko.
