  • Eyeopening, very well made exhibition. Can advice everybody who visits the area to come here and get some important history lesson.
  • This was an informative, educational, and historic place to visit and learn about the pows we held in our own country. I learned a lot. Was a very sad time in our American history.
  • A fascinating look into a scary and shameful time for America. The camp shows the time line of the Japanese internment during WWII and has wonderful displays of how people were taken from their homes with only what they could carry and the rooms they were forced into at the camp. The tour also describes day to day life in the camp and how the Internees did their best to maintain a normal life. Well worth the visit.
  • A powerful look at a difficult episode of American history. Don't miss this!
  • OMG! You have to here. Unbelievable story. Brings involuntary internment of Japanese Americans at start of WWII home like a hammer blow. One of best interpretative centers I've visited in my 68 years of life. Go!
