Fascinationg to realize that someone from Fredericksburg had such a succesfull career in the Navy. The history of his family and the information about naval operations are an excellent source of information for the history buff.

This museum was great. Admirial Nimitz was a man you want to learn more about. The museum was adjacent to the Pacific war museum and the ticket was for both places.

This museum has a lot to offer, and I believe there is a whole new section that Trip Advisor has yet to update.

We had no idea that Admiral Nimitz was from this area of Texas and were surprised to find a museum in his honor. I would highly recommend. Reasonable admission price, well done museum that gives you a glimpse into this man and his role in our Naval history.

It's a nice place, part of the Pacific War Museum, which is AWESOME! It's a little family history about Admiral Nimitz who played a big role in the Pacific War. Would see it if you've been to the Pacific Museum.

Since its redesign a few years ago, The Nimitz Museum has become a don't miss it destination. The displays are excellently done, and the frequent special programs make WWII come alive for those who were not there.
