Living History

The National Museum of the Pacific War's Living History programs includes "Pride of the Pacific"-our live battlefield program, and "The Outposts"-an in-depth presentation featuring our artifacts and items in our collection with staff and volunteers in World War II uniforms or period clothing. Any questions about our living history program please reach out to us at

Pride of the Pacific

The Pacific Combat Zone comes alive with the sights and sounds of combat on selected weekends throughout the year. Experience first hand the entire effort put forth from all those in uniform as well as on the home front in order to achieve victory in total way in the Pacific. The live-action performance features landing crafts, explosives, and flamethrowers as members of the Museum's own Company K.

This program is suspended due to COVID-19 but check back for updates later in 2021. The show is not recommended for children under the age of 6 due to loud noises and no pets are allowed during the performance.

The show was absolutely FANTASTIC! The educational aspect is great and the singing was unexpected but amazing. Give us MORE of that! It certainly put us back to 1942.

It is most definitely a tribute to those brave men and women who not only fought in the Pacific but worked and sacrificed in order to give the military the equipment and supplies to win the war.
