Pacific Front

Artifacts relating to the Pacific Front are less abundant, but the museum has managed to collect a decent number of important pieces. Uniforms, propaganda posters, and letters appear alongside medals, model ships, and Japanese offensive weapons, including an extremely rare fire bomb, carried to the U.S. by a Japanese paper balloon. Outside the museum, in its own garage, visitors may view a Higgins boat that was used for Allied landings in the Pacific.
