If you are coming to Little Tokyo for some shopping and Japanese food, the Museum is A must see. There are many nuggets of cultural and historical items pertaining to the influence and Life of Japanese Americans and their footprints in the US vernacular; both informative and entertaining.

We came on a free day. The activities were great. Drummers and kids crafts were well planned. Would go again when it is less crowded.

I enjoyed this museum. A lot of interesting displays. The section on the Atomic bomb is sad, but something everyone should see. This museum was free on the day I went, so that was cool.

Downtown LA has become a cultural treasure of the US with various experiences and world-class museum collections, and the Japanese American National Museum is a treasure often undiscovered by locals and visitors. Don't rush, take the time to slowly walk through and read the enlightening signage with the exhibits. It's a humbling experience, mainly when you read about and see the exhibits of the WWII internment. Before or afterwards, enjoy Little Tokyo, and have a nice meal:).

The visit to the JANM was thought provoking and highly recommended. If you have interests in the Japanese-American culture, internment camps, WWII contributions, looking for some information on your grand parents, or just have some extra time while visiting Little Tokyo, please drop in.
