In 2016, we opened our interpretive exhibition to the public. The Go For Broke National Education Center's Defining Courage Exhibition is a hands-on and participatory learning center in the heart of Los Angeles' Little Tokyo historic district. The exhibition explores the concept of courage through the lives of the young Japanese Americans of World War II, and asks modern visitors to act with similar courage in their own lives.

The exhibition is one-of-a-kind in its dynamic, hands-on, and experience-based approach, engaging visitors through participatory learning experiences. These experiences teach the history of the Japanese American World War II story and its relevance to our lives today. This isn't your typical history museum!

You will discover the courage of World War II soldiers, civilians, men and women whose actions have meaning today. You will ponder over choices to be made, feel the triumph of challenges overcome, and the heartbreak of lives lost. You will get to know ordinary people who became extraordinary heroes along the way. And in the process, you will re-think what courage means to you.
