Help make history

Do you have treasures hidden in your closet, or attic, or garage? The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program helps enrich the Nation’s heritage by adding stories from our Asian Pacific American experiences. We have collected documents, photographs, and objects for our museums so they can preserve, interpret, and exhibit our cultures and heritages.

For generations to come, these stories will be available to family members, students, and researchers. These collections will be valuable for films, books, and exhibitions. If you have any objects, such as artwork, documents, and photos, please contact Noriko Sanefuji at, to see if the Smithsonian is the appropriate place for safekeeping.
