A War museum to store old world war two relics for exhibition and tourist attraction will be unveiled tomorrow in Munda, Western province.
Permanent Secretary (PS) of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism John Wasi will do the honour of officially opening the locally owned museum.
A landowner in Munda owns the museum and with funding support from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism the project was able to get off the ground and is now ready to serve visitors.
Mr Wasi told the Solomon Star on Wednesday the museum was made possible through funding support by the ministry.
“This museum is owned by a local man in Munda and was funded by ministry worth over $60,000.
“This museum would house all the world war two relics around Munda for exhibition and tourist attraction,” Mr Wasi said.
PS Wasi said following the official opening of the museum, the police bomb team will assess the relics and decide which ones to be removed because some of them poses danger to the human lives.
Government through the ministry had thanked landowner for his personal initiative which the ministry really encourage and will continue to support such project in the future,” he said.
