This museum is relatively small and only took us about 1/2 hour to tour. It covers the life of Admiral Nimitz from the time he was born, through school until his death.

Excellent historical place to spend some time, learning a lot about our military & naval history during World War II. Fredericksburg is quite a quaint town as well! The museum has been remodeled and the exhibits are laid out well.

Even being former navy, learned more about Admiral Nimitz's life and navy career. As part of the WWII history and before.

This is a true hidden gem for those history buffs wanting more on WWII in the Pacific. We were surprised when purchasing tickets, it's a 2-day venue (yeah, right). After day 1, we had only seen half of what the museum had to offer! Plan accordingly - if you read exhibits (like we do) it will take you 2 FULL... More

This together with the Pacific War Museum is packed with information and history - really information overload. You need to do this and the museum in a two day stint if possible, otherwise your brain with fill up quickly and you start to zombie walk through. This is well worth the visit - really interesting history about Admiral Nimitz and... More

It is worth taking the time to visit the Nimitz site. I didn't know much about Mr. Nimitz or his upbringing until now. The history is thorough and the grounds were tastefully presented. Really liked the plaques on the walls of the ships and of the men & women who served in WWII.

Allow at least a full day to tour the Nimitz and Pacific War Museums in Fredericksburg. Your ticket allows 2 days. So much to see and so informative. We must never forget this world war! These are top notch museums, professionally done. A must to see.
