Time of Visit:

Tanks, explosions, landing craft and flamethrowers! Live-action programs in the Pacific Combat Zone put visitors on the front line.


The Pacific Combat Zone comes alive with the sights and sounds of combat on selected weekends throughout the year. The program integrates first-person stories of those who served, weapons displays, period music, and a live-action performance featuring landing craft, explosives, and flamethrowers as members of the Museum's own Company K recreate the capture of a Japanese defenders' position.

The Museum's Victory in the Pacific program immerses visitors in the sensations of battle, dramatically showing the equipment, weapons, and tactics of the U.S. Army and Marines and the Imperial Japanese Army as they fought on Tarawa, Peleliu, Saipan, and Iwo Jima.

This show is not recommended for children under the age of 6 due to loud noises.
