Pritchard Park is open during daylight hours. Dogs on leash are welcome in the park.
The Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial is a unit of the National Park Service Minidoka National Historic Site. During the summer the site is staffed by a NPS Ranger on weekends, typically after Memorial Day. You are also welcome to enjoy the memorial at your own pace and leisure. Wayside markers provide background narrative, or visit the newly re-opened Bainbridge Historical Museum for additional exhibits and films on the history of Japanese Americans on Bainbridge Island.
Accessibility - All of the Memorial walkways are ADA grade compliant, but ease of moving a guest in a wheelchair depends on the design and weight of the equipment. All areas can be wet at times, and there is a combination of wood and gravel walkways on site.
Special arrangements can be made for a guided tour of the site for groups with interests and purposes that align with the BIJAC mission. You may contact us via the request form below, but know that fewer tours can be accommodated this year. Please place your request at least 3 weeks in advance of your desired date. Tours are currently offered:
- Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays
- 10:00 a.m., noon, and 2:00 p.m.
