There is so much information here and a person should be prepared to view it slowly in order to absorb it all. At times it is difficult to read of all the battles and casualities. Allow alot of time.

Learned a great deal I didn't know. It really connects with the National Museum of the Pacific. The grounds around the compound of both also tells a story.

Here was a man who put everything on the line for his country. This museum shows him, along with his imperfections, and humanness. He was truly a great leader. We could use more people like Admiral Nimitz today. This museum is a must see for anyone interested in great people rising to great challenges.

Nimitz commanded more troops in WW II than Eisenhauer. Who would have known this great American Admiral came form landlocked Fredricksburg, Texas. Great little museum and a good educational experience.
