The World War II Living History Program at the National Museum of the Pacific War is an immersive, live show in which re-enactors move in to capture fortified positions from Japanese defenders on an unidentified island in the Pacific employing tanks, explosives and even a flamethrower. The program runs approximately one hour.
The WWII Pacific Combat Program includes not only the sights and sounds of live combat, but the personal stories of the men and women who fought in this particular theater. The audience will learn about the role of women during WWII as well as the roles of the five branches of the U.S. military. After the show, guests can meet the actors and get a first-hand look at equipment used by both American and Japanese forces.
10:30 am and 2 pm on Saturday; 10:30 am on Sunday. $10 adults; $5 kids age 6 to 17 and college students with ID; kids under age 5 and WWII Vets are always free.
