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.

Admiral Nimitz WWII Memorial and Museum is well worth a visit. My wife and I spent a whole day exploring and learning about the many exhibits. My Dad was in the Navy Sea Bees during WWII. He spent a good part of the war in the South Pacific. There were several exhibits of the many Islands that my Dad used... More

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.

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
