This is a large museum with an extensive and exhaustive look at the pacific theater of WWII. Don’t expect to see everything in less than three hours. It’s amazing insight into the cultural... more »
Step by step, the story of the Pacific War unfolds through displays, artifacts, and sound and video. This is one of the best museums I have ever encountered. Well worth your time. more »
Museum was absolutely fantastic. The amount of detailed information, the displays and videos were beyond top rate. Was there only 3 hours and I've got to go back to see more. As a student of WWII history I have seen many of the photos before, but not altogether in one place, displayed with such professional quality.
One of the very best museums on WWII I have ever seen. Planes, tanks, torpedoes, submarines everything is so well preserved and lovingly displayed. The Japanese garden and memorial area are beautiful. What a fitting tribute to our lost heroes! The curators did not miss a single detail. I highly recommend!
