Interesting small museum. Free! Museum is housed in an old army bunker. This bunker was so strong they didn’t tear it down. Has a gift shop. Next to the beach. Has a helicopter and large artillery gun as part of the exhibits.

This museum is right beside our hotel (Outrigger reef) so it was compulsory for us to visit. Free entry. Such an interesting museum with a wealth of information and exhibits. Take your time, it's worth it.

If you have any interest at all in military or US history, take the time to visit this old coastal battery turned museum. We loved the exhibits!

The US Army museum should be considered a broader overview of US military history on the island and as a supplement to Pearl Harbor, which focuses on a singular event. I was raised as a military brat who parent spent 30+ years in field artillery,...More

This may not be for everyone, but if you're interested in a free, brief "tour" of our military history over the past 60 years or so, it's pretty good. The museum is a bit "worn" but it has an actual old tank, helicopter, and other...More
