Where Will The Museum Be Situated?

The South Pacific World War II Museum has been granted a portion of land adjacent to Unity Park, a large area at the west end of the main street in Luganville. During World War II, the site was home to a US Navy Patrol Boat base on the edge of the Sarakata River. To give you some idea as to its location, we’ve overlaid our architect’s plan of the building on top of a satellite image of the area. By clicking on the pulsing red dots, you’ll see how the architects rendering’s of the completed building will look from those angles. The red arrows indicate which direction the renderings are facing.

Project Development Office

The Museum is currently restoring an old building on the edge of our Museum site that will become the Project Development Office. This will quickly become the hub for the project and where our administration staff will reside as we move into our fundraising phase. The site will also contain a mini museum where we’ll have on display a small but exciting range of exhibits currently in the Museum’s collection. This will provide a fantastic destination for tourists and other interested people wanting to find out more about the project as it proceeds.
You can see the building on the right hand side of the Museum plan, where the two new roads intersect.

It’s All About The Location

As the Museum will be situated close to the waterfront, it will no doubt become a favourite cruise ship passenger destination. A new multi-million dollar shipping terminal has recently opened to the east of the Museum site to better serve Luganville’s tourism industry. In fact the wharf is the longest in the South Pacific and can handle two cruise ships berthed at the same time.
