I really enjoyed my time in the museum. It has a nice display about WW2 in Saipan which isn't overwhelming with information. Plus, they have a very good 20 minute video about Saipan and the war. I'd highly recommend this Museum.

Be sure to go inside the visitor center and see the movie. Allow at least an hour. Movie is about 20 minutes long. Museum/ display is interesting- allow another 20 minutes for that at least. They have a small gift shop. They are Air Conditioned!!

The museum has many artifacts from WWII and has an engaging and powerful (very sad) exhibit. I would recommend anyone to go to learn about the history of Saipan.
