It’s OK. I mean, it’s not bad, but it’s small and not that attractive compared to many other tourist attractions in Saipan. Worth a visit though, people in Saipan love America.

This is a moving experience. Watch the short video about World War II and the role this same island played in the outcome of the Pacific Battle. Small but well done, very accommodating staff.

Many Americans died in the Pacific during WW2. This honors those who died on Saipan during the taking of Saipan. May one day peace prevail. One should visit here then the memorials the Japanese have on the Island
