Overview of Wiya Bird Cave

The bird cave located in Tafunsak about three miles from the airport and just before the quarry is home to thousands of Island Swiftlet birds. The mouth of the cave has a large opening that goes back about 60 feet; the floor is soft, but is covered with bird droppings and is considered unsafe to walk on. It is believed that the cave once cut through the island. Local lore says that giants used to live there and were thought to have taught Kosraeans how to count from one to ten and taught Kosraeans to fish. A sign adjacent to the cave will inform you of the legend. Parking is adjacent to the site off the main road. Entrance fee is $2.

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 As for the museum, it is very outdated, with some displays being broken.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.
