This place is not big, but I really liked it. They had many videos and high technology tools for visitors to learn about WWII history of Guam. It is the war between the US vs. Japan.

The museum is packed with information of the past. I brought my kids there a couple of weeks ago and the absolutely loved it! They got to answer some of the questions being given out and the museum allows us to buy little trinkets, allowing us to have a part of the past.

Visited while on vacation to Guam with my spouse and three kids (ages 11, 9, and 6). The Visitor Center is relatively small but a great place to begin the tour of Guam's disparate WWII historic sites. I and the kids absolutely enjoyed the central display of the sequence of the US liberation of the island, done with laser indicators... More

I love what the National Parks Service provides for education and enjoyment. The visitor center was almost too much for my tender hearted 9 year old, but she was super interested and learned a lot. As always, we used the wonderful Junior Ranger program for a way to structure our tour, do fun activities, learn a lot and get a... More

We stopped by the Stell Newman Visitor Center after visiting Asan Beach. In hindsight, we should have done this stop first. Though it is small, the visitor center is packed with information. There is an informational video when you first enter and the displays throughout the center are highly interactive. The park rangers were super helpful providing information, maps, and... More

The visitor center was named after the park's first superintendent, T. Stell Newman. The park which is now a museum that exhibits pieces of Guam history. Interactive exhibits welcome you as you go around inside the Visitor Center. Gripping personal war stories, museum artifacts with multiple language support. Aside from the exhibits, they have a new area in the center... More
