Grand Opening of Museum Exhibits
Contact: Dan Brown, 671-333-4051
Sixty-eight years ago, on July 21, 1944, American troops spilled blood and wrote history. At that time, Guam became a fiercely contested battleground, an island in the Pacific that militaries fought and killed for. The bravery and the sacrifice of those who participated in the Pacific campaigns of World War II must never be forgotten. Today, War in the Pacific National Historical Park is proud to announce the opening of our new museum exhibits at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center that share their story. Many staff, partners, community members, and other collaborators have worked tirelessly to bring the exhibits to completion, and of course we thank all of them deeply. The years and investment that went into this design and installation will pale in comparison, however, to the exhibit's longevity and the educational opportunities that will arise from it.
