In my opinion this museum is one of the finest museums for youth. They have very accurate videos, dealing with World War II.

Most of the information presented in this museum was over my head, but the movies were very informative. If you are a scientist, love history or want to know what is new in science, this place is for you.
Luckily for us foul weather gave us a chance to visit this museum. We didn't spend much time here, but found things very informative & fascinating. Definitely surprised to view replicas of atomic bombs dropped on Japan. Both were substantially smaller than I ever imagined

The museum is an interesting attempt to blend a whole lot of local content into a small space, so errors and omissions wouldn't surprise me. Museum folks usually take comments, particularly about errors, seriously and make attempts to fix those, so good for you for pointing them out. Barb C. All museums speak from a particular culture's point of view, so I expect that there are other museums that are more expansive on the Pacific history, while this one focuses on many different aspects of the history that happened in this particular locality.
