Kokopo War Museum Reviews
This museum began in the early 1980's as a small museum at the so called "Yamamoto Bunker" in Rabaul, and was moved to Kokopo to accomidate the growing collection, and in anticpation of a volcanic eruption. The museum's collection was largely assembled and donated by the efforts of Brian Bennett. The original board of directors included: David Lindley, Brian Bennett, Alister Norrie and Dick Joyce. This museum contains a large collection of WWII artifacts from the Rabaul related to the history of the area, including local art & culture, German colonial period, prewar and WWII Japanese occupation.
Great history, right there.
