Overview of Forbidden Island (Rumung)

The island of Rumung has been forbidden to all foreigners since the 17th century. The absolute preservation of culture and tradition was paramount to the community of Rumung.

The barriers of entry were recently lifted to allow a few outsiders to visit select areas of this truly historic spot. A symbolic artifact of the Yapese culture resides on the island - the two largest pieces of stone money within the island chain - both span approximately 12 feet and each weigh more than a few tons.

Brion H. wrote about Kosrae State Museum:

"Unfortunately, my experience was not very good. The sign said Open, but the doors were locked. I was told to go through the back entrance to get to the museum. I also had to leave through the back office area, as the doors were never opened up. As for the museum, it is very outdated, with some displays being broken. The information was interesting, but all of the information could probably be found online (or should be available online). If you go with low expectations, then it is worth the trip.
