this was a very good historical place to visit and very well cared for and easy to get around as long as you keep your map, one area is led by tour guide the rest you do yourself at your own pace. it was very good and we will go again

My husband and I recently toured this museum and it's adjoining neighbor - The National Museum of WWII for the Pacific Front. In hindsight we would have gotten the audio tour and would have gone earlier in the day. This museum needs to be done over two days. Word of advice to families with children- This is a lot if...

We visited this, along with the Museum of the Pacific War. Your ticket includes both and is good for 48 hours. Plan on spending two days to see everything. We spent an afternoon - about 3 hours, maybe 4 - seeing the Nimitz and then part of the Bush Gallery. Went back the next morning to the Bush Gallery and... More

Good exhibits giving lots of information on life of Admiral Nimitz and his family. Although if you are planning on visiting the museum of the pacific war as well I wouldn't bother with this one too.

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.
