Bamban WWII Museum (Bamban Museum for short) is the community museum dedicated to the history of Bamban and its environs with particular interest on WWII History.
The Beginning and Activities
Bamban Museum was opened to the public in 2005. It is owned and operated by Rhonie C. Dela Cruz with the assistance of volunteers from the Bamban Historical Society members. The Bamban Historical Society volunteers also conduct battlefield reconnaissance and investigation in the former battlefields of the Bamban and collect relics and artefacts.
These artefacts are on display at the Museum as pieces of the history of the Battle of Bamban Hills. Another particular interest in the Museum is the Aetas of WWII and the WWII Heroes Project exhibit. These activities are long-term research and study of the local veterans of Bamban by the Museum and dedicated to their memory.
The Visitors of Bamban Museum
In addition to the local community, the museum is committed to serving tourists, scholars, and students at the local, national, and international levels. Priority is given to visitors from Japan and the United States, especially those whose ancestors served in World War II. We were given permission by a few of our visitors to record and publish their reviews of their time with us. Click here to see their pictures and read what they have to say about us.
