A visit to this is included in your visit to the National Museum of the Pacific War and it gives the visitor the background to understand why this huge museum is located in Fredricksburg. You will learn all (and I do mean all!) about Adminiral Nimitz and this will help your appreciation of his role in the Pacific.

A must see when you stop in Fredericksburg. The museum is a wonderful tribute to Admiral Nimitz, and a very informative and sobering look at WWII. Larger than life exhibits and well worth the visit.

The museum was very modern, larger than life exhibits. I couldn't believe such a wonderful museum hidden in this small town. You have to see it to believe it. Well worth a trip.

My husband was going to leave us at the house while he visited this museum, simply because he is a veteran and he didn't think we would enjoy it as much. I'm so glad we went. I don't think I have been to a neater and history rich museum. It was very interactive and very interesting. I think I had... More

This museum is a must for any history buff! Although well known for his WWII feats, this museum goes much farther than that. It truly covers a remarkable man in American history. My son & I enjoyed our visit and plan on going again!

If you are in Fredericksburg you must stop in and see this museum for yourself! I have seen this place grow from my time as a Boy Scout until now. Over the years it has gotten bigger but never lost the history.

Although I had heard of Admiral Nimitz in relation to WWII, I was unaware of his lifelong accomplishments, particularly in his younger years. The museum gives a look at his family background and tells the history of the german settlements in Texas. Well worth the time. The pass to the War in the POacific Museum gets you in here, also.

The purchase of your ticket to the pacific war museum also gets you admission here. The building is small and is dedicated to the military life of admiral Nimitz and some of his role in the war. A few interesting artifacts on display, and you are given a background story to help explain the admirals relationship with admiral Togo and... More
