  • Very well laid out and artefacts gathered are incredibly interesting. We learnt much more about the threat of the japanese in the south pacific. 
  • This interesting museum is a great place to learn about WWII. The displays are thoughtful and the audio guide is helpful. 
  • Is a place to visit on part that is exposed but it also lets you see the impact that the American presence and the second world war has had on the territory of New Caledonia.
