American Memorial Park
One of the best places to discover the history of Saipan, this memorial park offers a small but well-maintained exhibition building with good displays bearing English texts and a friendly staff. The displays trace the battles fought on the island during World War II. An informative movie plays every hour and the park grounds are ideal for a stroll. The museum is free of charge. For a general history of Saipan—and to see relics retrieved from a sunken Spanish galleon—visit the Museum of History and Culture near Sugar King Park in Garapan.
