“Beautiful and moving”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

There is a good history of the war in the Pacific presented on the inside walls as well. I wish we had more time there.

“Very moving, very beautiful”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

This beautiful cemetery and monument has to be one of the more unique and moving war monuments in the world. The monument pays homage to Americans and Filipinos who died during WWII, including tens of thousands whose remains were never found. The monument is surrounded by the military cemetery, concentric circles of crosses and Stars of David leading outward along the gently sloping hillside. The monument also has a remarkable set of mosaics depicting every military battle fought in the Pacific during WWII in full detail. The murals are both a remarkable history lesson and stunning works of art. The grounds are beautifully maintained, the whole setting is beautiful and profoundly moving. Don't miss this. You won't soon forget it.

“A must see in Manila”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Step into the American Cemetery in Manila, and you are stepping onto US land purchased by General MacArthur so that men and women who served and killed in WWII were able to go "home" to the US.
