Japanese American National Museum information
A great first stop in Little Tokyo, this is the country’s first museum dedicated to the Japanese immigrant experience. You’ll be moved by galleries dealing with the painful chapter of the WWII internment camps. Afterward relax in the tranquil garden, and browse the well-stocked gift shop. Admission is free on Thursdays from 5pm to 8pm, and all day on the third Thursday of each month.
