Renew the Gift – Take Pride in Our National Bonsai & Penjing Museum!

Those loving the high energy we have in American Bonsai today have joined the Campaign to renovate the 37-year-old Japanese Pavilion in our National Museum in Washington, DC.

Is your name on the list?

The Japanese Pavilion was built to display the magnificent bonsai given to the American people by the people of Japan to celebrate our country’s Bicentennial in 1976.

  • This is the Gift that led to the creation of what is now the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum – the 1st Bonsai Museum in the world.

  • This is the Gift that sparked dramatic advances in the art of bonsai throughout the United States and the Western World.

  • This is the Gift we renew today by reconstructing the Japanese Pavilion as the finest and most beautiful bonsai display in the world!   

If you love bonsai, you need to be on the list! Click here to make a tax-deductible donation by credit card.
