They are going through a transition in leadership and staffing, and only have staff to keep it open to the public noon-4 pm on Saturdays. They will be closed during July. Beautifully renovated former bank building next to White Park. The excellent video is shown...More

Went to the building for the historical architecture but fell in love with the exhibits. The story of Mine Okubu is both heartbreaking and inspirational.

Mine Okubo's drawings of life in a WW II interment camp were exceptional. This was worth the trip. We are glad the exhibit exists. The preserved building itself is worth a trip. Bring your camera for the classic architecture. My first visit was distracted by...More

The collection is unusual and moving, featuring people and events not often seen. Riverside's rich history is well displayed on the first floor. The paintings by Mine Okubo were worth the trip alone.

Riverside has a very good history of people who have gone out of their way to help others and this museum devotes a great deal of space to many of those special people.

The Center for Social Justice and Civil Liberties is in an unlikely venue. The lovingly restored turn-of-the-century bank building sits quietly near Riverside's White Park. Inside is what might just be the most emotionally moving museum in a 30 miles radius. Downstairs features the stories...More
