Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles Reviews

  • Fascinating place to be. You become immersed in the Japanese American culture during the early 20th century, and it is educational as well as being extremely rewarding and fun. They have real artifacts from that era, such as newspapers and armchairs and handcuffs and things like that. Definitely a good way to spend a Saturday.

  • I went to this museum kind of randomly, but it was a great experience. It's not huge, so you can spend your time with each exhibit. The staff is also very knowledgeable and are happy to answer any and all questions.

  • Beautiful building commemorating Japanese American history with a focus on Internment camp. They also host interesting, relevant exhibits that change every 5-6 months. It's conveniently located across the street from Gold line station (Little Tokyo /Art District). Admission is free if you are a member of Japanese American Citizenship League (JACL).

  • I took my daughter here, it is a small museum but there are many vintage artifacts that are very interesting to look at. If you take your time to look around and actually read the information you have a chance to learn a part of Japanese culture and such.

  • Nice place to learn about the camps that Japanese were placed in. We did origami which was really cool. We learned about Taiko drumming and even got to use the drums really interesting. Also, nice people telling you about their personal experiences. You should definitely go.
