Betikama College War Museum

Around the Solomons it is common to collect war relics and to charge admission to tourists to inspect the remains. These planes, or what’s left of them, are on display not far from Honiara International Airport.

The Betikama school is a small open-air museum with artefacts from the battle of Guadalcanal (1942-1943), including aircraft wrecks that were salvaged in the region.

For current visiting hours, please contact the museum.
