Manzanar National Historic Site
History lovers shouldn't miss out on a trip to Manzanar, one of the most well-preserved war relocation camps of WWII. This was home to many Japanese migrants post Pearl Harbor. Today, a visit to the place can be really interesting as remains like the barracks, exhibits around the camp and various pictures taken by photographers recreate a scene of how things might have been. Though the memories that it brings back are not all pleasant, the location with the majestic Sierra-Nevada backdrop is undoubtedly breathtaking!
Truly a important historic site. It shows clearly how the Japanese Americans were treated and incarcerated during WW2. The Center is filled with historical remnants and stories. The self drive tour is also interesting. It is a worthwhile visit and stays with you. I recommend it!
It's free! It's also an amazing thing to visit. The auditorium is incredible and it's well worth the visit. Highly reccomended!! The cemetary is very moving. There's a driving tour you can do which encompasses a 3.4 mile track around the camp. We were very moved by this camp.
The Manzanar Detention center is being renovated and restored- finally. There is a new museum / visitor center and there are a number of new exhibits. See the way the Japanese detainees lived while in custody during WW2. The ghosts of the place are palpable as you walk or drive through the compound. Well worth a stop. Look for the stone gatehouse on the west side of US 395 near Independence.
