  • A small but very worthwhile museum. The self guide leaflet was very informative and the exhibits and photos were fascinating. Very worthwhile  more »
  • Japanese who emigrated to the United States had what struggling? Did carve what history? You can clearly see. It is a history of the Japanese in the United States are not talked about much.
