  • I took my parents to Heart Mountain last week and it was the first time for all of us. It was a very humbling experience that I hope would never be repeated in this day and age. Exhibits follow a timeline that was very informative. I was amazed how many of the former barracks were bought up by locals and turned into houses, barns, and storage sheds. Definitely a place I will be taking further visitors to our home in Powell
  • An incredibly well-done and thoughtful site commemorating the Japanese American. Internment camp experience. So important for our country's history.
  • A very moving place. Very well laid out and tells the story in a moving way. You'll learn more than you expect. Worth the time, very close to Cody. We need places like this to remind us that even the best and greatest can make monumental mistakes. Places like this remind us to learn from the mistakes of our ancestors.
  • This interpretive display & museum was very disheartening but so educational & informative. We can't stand the fact that our own government treated our own citizens the way they did. Very touching & emotional. Every American should see this to understand our own history as terrible as it was! We can't get over the fact that the Japanese were good enough to go to war but not good enough to be free! What a disgrace! Well worth spending an afternoon!
  • The history here is something worth educating oneself on. Certainly we do not want History to repeat it self. You can go through in about an hour or take much longer to really read and experience the place. Just imagining what life was like here in 1943-1945 , cold and harsh world.
