A National Park Museum in Guam regarding the Pre and Post Pearl Harbor Event. Your greeted by a two man Japanese submarine outside that gets your attention right away. Inside are excellent maps, time sequence stations about the war, listening stations and videos. The gift shop has many fine and reasonable priced take away items. Model airplanes of the period...

This is part of a larger National Park system that encompasses several sites. I recommend starting at the small, very well done museum located just outside Naval Base Guam. There you can get information about the other sites including maps and any available tours/talks. They offer a free Junior Ranger badge as well! Our kids, 4 and 6 at the... More

Having seen many tv documentaries about the US taking Guam back and other Islands in this area, I knew I just had to visit as many Horrific landing sites that our BRAVE Armed Forces had to endure just to give THANKS and be forever grateful for their acts of heroism and bravery that one could not really understand until you...

I still can't understand how the Marines were able to do it, and I wonder what the Japanese were thinking as they watched the assault unfolding below them. A very small, but valuable, insight into a brutal war.

Wonderful history lesson. Took a hike up the hill. Was further than it looked, but awesome view from top. Found bunker in side of hill and down by the water. Beautiful to see.

This park, with it's one mile path, is the best place on Guam to take a walk, jog or just enjoy the sunshine. Also available are great displays regarding the Japanese and US battle there from WWII.

The location on the main highway is the most public location. The main location has a very large obelisk hidden behind a large hill and facing the ocean. You will also see a marker indentifying the location of the Command Post of Brig General L.G. Shepherd from 1944. In addition to the Command Post marker, you will be able to... More

This park is just part of the wonderful history lesson about Guam's liberation in 1944. The sites where US troops landed on Guam and fought to take back the island from the Japanese are indeed historic places, but you can't miss the new visitor center that is manned by the National Park rangers. Opened in July 2012, this state of... More

Interesting to add in American History in between scuba dives and snorkeling. Interesting walks and climbs. Odd to see the exploded bomb casings in the sandy beach being touched by gentle and peaceful waves. Plan on spending a few hours and exploring the park.
