I visited so many attractions in Okinawa, and this was not one of my favorite, but still terrific. The views were great. I couldn't understand the tour guide very well, which I am sure was part of it. Worth visiting.

Recommended, especially for those not too familiar with the history of the island. Gives another layer of appreciation for this place. A good juxtaposition for such a trial paradise. As others have said, do the audio tour inside the main museum.

The visit was way better than expected. The museum is very well set up to show the history of the second world War in Okinawa and the subsequent occupation. I would visit the museum first so you get a sense for the meaning of the...More

You can make it, but make sure you include ShuriCastke to visit. The Peace Park is open and spacious so when on site, move quickly or you will spend your whole time there. Good luck
