    Wish we hadn't waited so long to visit this historic site. It really exceeded our expectations. Worth the admission fees. Well done. Moving. Excellent educational opportunity.

    Very educational museum. A good example of racism at its worst, confining thousands of Japanese during World war II for over 3 years. There are lessons to be learned at the center. Be sure to download the heart mountain AR app before going so you can use it while you are walking the grounds outside.

    Everyone should visit this site to gain a better perspective of U.S. history. It's a shame its remoteness likely leads to a lack of visitors, but at the same time is part of the reason it's so important. Friendly staff, ample parking. Memorial for internees who served during WWII, some KIA, while their families remained in the camp and other structures are within 1/4-mile.

    Today, the Twins, decided it was high time to find out what Heart Mountain Interpretive center was all about. As we parked and entered the Center, we were greeted by a guide who gave us information regarding the Center and what we would be seeing. We watched an old movie that gave insight on what had taken place all those many years ago. As i left the theater, my heart felt heavy that a President, who should have been protecting these 'Americans' rights, chose instead to do just the opposite and destroyed many lives in the process. Much information is contained in the Center and, at a cost of just $7 (senior), you can learn a great deal through murals, short movies, as well as talking to the staff. The most interesting part of the day was standing between a couple of worn down barracks, and walking the worn trails so as to get pictures of the hospital, a guard tower and get a feel of a part of history that I pray never happens again! **Highly Recommend

    This interpretive center provides basic and personal information about the camp and why Japanese Americans were sent here. It describes the conditions they lived under and offers a view of how the lives of those who lived here were impacted. The displays are well done. Give yourself plenty of time to absorb all the information.
