Corregidor Pacific War Memorial Museum

On Corregidor Island we took a tour around the island in a tramvia: a small open sided bus designed to look like the electric trolleys used on the island during World War II. After an early buffet lunch the tour guide took our group up to the Topside area of the island. The sky filled with dark clouds as we passed the crumbling giant ruins of the topside barracks.

With rain starting to come down heavy, being stuck amongst the jungle and ruins without cover seemed likely. Instead the driver took us up to the back door of a more modern building, even providing umbrellas for the few steps it took to get indoors. Inside and out of the rain we examined the World War II relics on display in the museum. As the storm cleared we gradually wandered outside to explore the Pacific War Memorial.

The Pacific War Memorial Museum on Corregidor Island has on display artifacts from World War II.
