Well, it was a very interesting code, one that supposedly they Japanese could not crack during the 2.W.W. Unfortunately, time has long passed this fact and the importance of it. Entrance Google!! However, if you are a “war buff”, you will probably enjoy it.

Take the time to stop here to see & read about this important part of WWII history that for too long was kept confidential. These men were, and still are, true heroes to not only our Country but to their Navajo culture as well

Super tiny place but interesting. You can cover it in 15 to 20 minutes. It’s free. Certainly worth the walk over if you are staying in the area.

This exhibit is very comprehensive, and is fascinating. There is a lot of memorabilia, and really this is well worth visiting if not just to discover an interesting episode in WW2 history.

Interesting thing to look at I guess. Drawing you inside a not very clean fast food joint to look at it is kinda sad though. There were also some Navajos discreetly selling fake jewelry at the tables outside the door.

Very small exhibit but interesting.very odd location as it is within the Burger King . I think what these men did deserves more attention.

It's a little strange having a historical exhibit inside a fast food place but it was every bit as interesting as you would find in a museum and better than most. Don't let the venue make you think it's not worthy of a stop as...More

As children, they were forced into BIA schools where they were beaten for using their native tongue. As men, they used that tongue and an elaborate code as an unbreakable "encryption " for radio messages during WW II combat missions. The small, but impressive, code...More

We were delighted with this exhibit as this is such an important, but little known history of the Navajo contribution to our victories in the Pacific theater in WWII.

We enjoyed this small historical and important exhibit. Thank you to the families who are sharing these artifacts and memories of the soldiers who provided n important service during WWII. Beautifully curated and I would recommend a stop!
