Great front end to the Pacific War Museum. Learned about his life and family before his service in the Navy.

World War II is brought to life and presented very well in the Nimitz Museum. Parents should be aware that there are very few if any interactive exhibits in the presentation. There is a nice balance between the artifacts and the written material. More lighting would have been appreciated in some of the areas. This is not a museum for... More

This museum is fantastic. One ticket gets you into 3 different tours. The prices were quite reasonable for all you see. This is a museum dedicated to Nimitz. I have more admiration for him having going through the museum. It is well worth going to.

I am not a huge World War II buff but really enjoy history of any kind that can transport me to the place where it happened. Admiral Nimitz grew up in Fredericksburg, Texas in the lovely Hill Country. The Admiral Nimitz Museum has a good biographical overview of Nimitz and the kind of audio and visual exhibits that put you... More

We took our grandson to tour all the museums with the Museum of the Pacific War. He learned a lot, and thoroughly enjoyed them.

Should be seen with the National Museum of the Pacific War. This historic site concerns more of the Nimitz family history. Make sure you see the grounds of this site along with the museum grounds.

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
