Description:
The Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre is a museum and interpretive centre in New Denver, British Columbia, Canada, dedicated to the history of the Japanese Canadians that were relocated to internment camps during World War II by the Canadian government (see Japanese Canadian internment).



The site consists of five buildings, of which three are original shacks built to house the interred people. Many artifacts such as stoves and furnishings are preserved, as are some personal effects of the displaced people. It also features a Japanese garden designed by Roy Sumi, a former supervisor of the Nitobe Memorial Garden at the University of British Columbia.
