The Rota Cave Museum

The museum itself is housed in a cave that is said to be approximately 10 million years old and is worth a visit in itself. From the entrance to the rear of cave it is about 250 feet in length and your path is lined with artifacts that span the ages, from the ancient Chamorro, with a few items from the Spanish intrusion to many Japanese & American pieces mostly from the WWII era.

This is a great opportunity to view artifacts from Rota's history and if your lucky owners Matais or Mercedes will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and can tell you the story or weave you a tale on every piece in their collection.

Also adjacent to the museum is a hiking trail that winds its way up to the cliff line above the cave itself. Interested parties can call if they would like to make an appointment/arrangement for the Cave Museum or the hiking trail.
