Minidoka is a bit out of the way but well worth the drive. (The drive also takes you through lots of Idaho farm land and we got to see some potatoes being harvested and a giant mountain of potatoes. I found it very exciting.)
A nice gravel pathway leads you on a 1.6 mile loop through historical buildings and signs that tell the story.
It's an unfortunate bit of history but what really impressed me was the fortitude of the internees. They took a terrible situation that was forced on them and did the best they could with it. I think it's important to preserve sights like this so we don't forget the trials of those before us.
I would definitely recommend visiting this historic monument.
