Pacific Combat Zone Up Close
This staff-led presentation allows students to get the "boots on the ground" experience. Walk the battlefield , see artifacts up close, and learn more about WWII in the Pacific.
If you can't come to the museum, we can come to your classroom and conduct a history lesson using WWII artifacts.
