“Nicely organized displays”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

As you enter the museum, you are asked your native language. The employees will show a video depicting the events of the Battle of Saipan which is well done and informative in your native language. The museum is small but includes a number of informative, interesting displays.

I was there just after the government shut down. There is no staff working in the park, however, the environment is good, a lot of trees.

“A movilng experience”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

This United States Park commemorates one of the most important Pacific battles in World War II. The exhibits, a film
and Park staff help you understand what it was like for combatants and residents when the US invaded Saipan shortly after D-Day in Europe.

A well kept memorial park, well laid out and a must see.
The museum is free and excellent. The movie before one visits the exhibits is excellent.
