School Tours - EXCLUSION Exhibition

The current special exhibition EXCLUSION: The Presidio’s role in World War II Japanese American Incarceration, provides an excellent backdrop for engaging students in critical thinking, historical inquiry, and contemporary issues such as immigration, civil liberties, racism, democracy, role of media, and mass incarceration.

This exhibition encourages students to investigate the choices- both personal and political- that led to this dark chapter in American history. Students are also invited to make their own connections and share their own reflections by participating in Your Voice Matters throughout the gallery.

Teachers who would like bring their class on a self-guided visit to the exhibit with their class must complete the special exhibition tour request at least 3 weeks prior to their visit​. The gallery has limited space and can accommodate small groups only. After your request has been received, an educator will confirm your tour date & time, provide further instructions, and design an experience that works for you, your students and class size.
