This is the portal for the Battle of Surigao Strait Museum, a historical museum established in Surigao City. It will officially opened on the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Surigao Strait Museum on Oct 25, 2014. It is the only museum in the world that has a complete display of a "fired" WW2 Japanese aerial torpedo which did not hit its target and instead dived into the sand, only to be found 70 years after.
