I used the tour from the ship,it covered the Kokopo area, Bita Paka cemetery, and a jap tunnel tour, but there were a lot of locals outside the wharf touting tours, for certain cheaper as well, but the Kokopo war museum is really a disappointment, the only stuff there is out in the open area in front of the building, no conservation , no background etc, nothing in the buildings, except some bullet casings and a large crate full of wrecked aircraft parts, the Jap barge tunnel was a huge area lit by one solitary 20w floro tube, the barges are a pile of rust with no conservation , TAKE A TORCH Cheeers
