This is a must see to understand the history of Guam and why the USA is there. It not only depicts the horrors brought upon the island by the Japanese but shows the heroics of the Chammoro and American civilians and Warriors who fought hard to take this small and beautiful island back from the hands of Japanese Tyranny.

An OK experience and the kids had a good time but not an incredible experience after visiting Vietnam's War Museum last year. Admission is NOT free! It's $3 per person. Worth it if you've never been here.

The only US National Park devoted to World War Two land battle. The visitor center is small but has some good exhibits and excellent electric map display of how the battle played out. I was disappointed there was not detailed driving tour of the various locations of the 1944 battle, both on NPS land and those outside the park.

Had the opportunity to visit here during a layover. Great museum with tons of history, especially from the Chamorro point of view.

This museum had quite a lot of artifacts from the Pacific war and one needed time to read each description. They had done a good job collecting this material to give a comprehensive story. It was worth the visit and the time we spent there.

This museum is privately owned and asks for a small donation. The military vehicles are interesting to me but I wish the signs were on all the vehicles since I did not know what they all were. The Japanese and American halls with photos. letters and armaments was very interesting. I think it is worth a visit.

Considering Guam is such a small place, this museum's size is sufficient. And the vehicles on view are kept in very good condition. The doors still open and close! It was also nicely designed wherein the japanese and the american's display area were separated, to give justice to both sides.

By chance we stopped by on December 8 - the day after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. What we did not realize was that the Micronesian Islands - including Guam - were attacked the day after (Dec 8) and the magnitude of the invasion. There was a huge amount of blood shed in this part of the world on... More

If you are a war buff, this is great museum. It has artifacts from both the US military and the Japanese military.
