I had no idea what kind of person Admiral Nimitz was and I came out impressed and in awe of him and what he contributed to the war effort and also to his family.

This museum not only educates one on the War of the Pacific in WWII, it also honors those who served with the wonderful plaques on the outside walls. The kiddos loved in and so did I.

Set in a weird looking building on the Main Street, this museum was a remarkably collection of Nimitz memorabilia along with hundreds of donated items relevant to WWII. Easily spent 3 hours here and learned a great deal about the man and the conflict. If you are a student of either you must see this place!

This was a beautiful site and exhibit that I truly recommend to anyone visiting Fredericksburg. You not only learn more about the towns history but US history as well.

His quotes were inspirational and his advancement in the ranks to Admiral showed true leadership qualities and patriotism. There is a larger-than-life statue in the courtyard next to the museum where you can have your picture taken with the WWII hero. Incidentally, if you wonder why... More

Can you believe that Admiral Nimitz, came from a land locked area and was in charge of the Pacific Theatre during WWII. I find that very interesting. The museum is very cool and lures you in with a time line, just go with that and be amazed of the soldiers that were in combat and what they had to endure.... More

Professionally done, this place has an absolute wealth of WWII information, memorabilia, film, and photo documentation. There are jeeps, planes, guns, and parts of ships, as well as both American and Japanese items. Great gift shop. Beautiful memorial wall and wall of presidents who served.
