We arrived by ship and planned to walk to the museum. Turns out the museum has moved and is now only a very short walk from the pier. As you leave the cruise area, there will be people on the corners.... more »
This is a small museum in temporary quarters. There is an interesting display of tribal and clan artifacts. Aussies and Kiwis will be very interested in the display about the battle of Milne Bay; the first time the Japanese were defeated in a land battle. Most special is the display of wood carving by 40 local carver's from variety of clans of this part of the island. These each tell a story of each clan, and display the particular animal totems of the clan in beautiful abstract markings. With luck, some of the carver's may be working in the lobby; working their magic in Ebony and other tropical woods.
