VFP Museum, Library, Archives, and Theatre:

World War II history comes alive in this fantastic museum with state-of-the-art technology. Docu-dramas with stereo sounds highlight untold stories of heroism and daring acts of courage. Vividly recreated battle scenes are brought to life by dramatic lighting, narrations, and special effects. The excitement of battle is portrayed as American and Philippine soldiers take on the Japanese invaders. Audio-visual facilities show rare documentaries on World War II.

Manila American Cemetery and Memorial:

Manila American Cemetery and Memorial

This peaceful, well-manicured, final resting place of American veterans who fought in the Pacific is located near the center of Manila. It covers 152 acres of gently rising ground, which culminates at the Memorial. This is the biggest of cemeteries built and administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission. It contains the most graves of all national cemeteries along with actual listing of that Missing-In-Action. Their names are recorded on the walls of the Memorial.
