The former battlefields, gun emplacements, trenches, and historic structures found at War in the Pacific National Historical Park all serve as silent reminders of the bloody World War II battles. Join us for a guided tour that will include stops at:
• The T. Stell Newman Visitor Center where interactive exhibits feature the latest technology, gripping personal stories, museum artifacts, and multiple language support. The Museum store has an impressive collection of educational publications on the Pacific War, Guam history, and the natural and cultural resources of this region.
• Asan Bay Overlook which serves as a memorial to those that lost their lives or suffered atrocities during the war. This unit features beautiful views of the sea-side villages of Asan and Piti and a perspective of the landing beaches used by Marines during the battle. The Asan Bay Overlook includes landscaped walkways, established view sheds, and several commemorative bronze sculptures which depict the events on Guam during the World War II Japanese occupation and battle in 1944.
