WWII Living History Outpost Programs

About

Living History Outposts at the National Museum of the Pacific War are short, interactive, and FUN presentations designed for small audiences. Our free 20-25-minute long programs feature educational interpreters who portray WW2 historical characters at our living history site. Outpost programs take place at the Pacific Combat Zone in the William Clements, Jr. Amphitheater allowing for plenty of fresh air, protection from the sun and space for social distancing. Outpost programs take place every Saturday from March through November with the exception of the second Saturday of the month.

Outposts in July:

July 16 - Artillery. Taking out well-defended targets at long range often required that the military bring in the big guns-and the artillerymen who fired them. Attend this Outpost to learn more about how artillery shaped the battlefield in the Pacific and helped propel the United States to overwhelming victory! Programs at 11:00 and 11:30 am and 1:00 and 1:30 pm.

July 23 - Tales from the Homefront.  The Second World War was not confined to Europe and the Pacific; rather, Americans back on the home front made sacrifices to keep the war effort going strong. Come to this Outpost program to learn about what it was like to be an everyday American in extraordinary times. Programs at 11:00 and 11:30 am and 1:00 and 1:30 pm.

July 30 - Food on the Front. Napoleon is famous for quipping that "an army marches on its stomach." This saying held true during the Pacific War. Come down to this Outpost program to learn about the meals that kept our GI's nourished and fit to fight! Programs at 11:00 and 11:30 am and 1:00 and 1:30 pm.
