Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles Reviews - Write a Review

  • Small but very informative and family-friendly. They host fantastic cultural, entertainment and charity events here throughout the year. Rotating temporary displays are also fascinating. The constant metro construction nearby impedes traffic/parking but there are free days that make the visit worthwhile.

  • Very informative about Japanese American history. From the Issei to the Nissei to present times. Even a substantial exhibit of the period of internment. A subject until very recently knew very little about. I highly recommend this museum to anyone.

  • Nice museum. It's a humbling tour through the history of Japanese descendents in America. The traveling exhibition this week was very rich as well.

  • Wish there was more dimension.given to this group than just the internment camps but done really well. And it is an important subject many know nothing about it

  • Great work by curators organizing the order of exhibits. There was excellent flow to the entire exhibit and everything felt pertinent. The exhibits were very moving. I learned a great deal about Japanese American culture.
