  • Really enjoyed this center. It has sites outside that you are able to walk up to. There are many facts and statements from people who had been at heart mountain in 1942. There is a room to show the space a family had during their stay. Also some beautiful paintings by a lady within the camp. I had no idea this center was here, drove by it to attempt to hike heart mountain, needs more signs and advertisement. The outside walkway sets up a good visual of the layout the camp had. The hospital building is still standing, you can walk up to it but can't go in. It's only $7 for adults. I would definitely recommend if ever in the area.
  • This place was amazing!! The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The entire experience was somber but the displays were exquisite. I highly recommend looking at the outbuildings and the memorial further up the road. It is DEFINITELY worth the drive and the visit.
