Can you believe that Admiral Nimitz, came from a land locked area and was in charge of the Pacific Theatre during WWII. I find that very interesting. The museum is very cool and lures you in with a time line, just go with that and be amazed of the soldiers that were in combat and what they had to endure.... More

Professionally done, this place has an absolute wealth of WWII information, memorabilia, film, and photo documentation. There are jeeps, planes, guns, and parts of ships, as well as both American and Japanese items. Great gift shop. Beautiful memorial wall and wall of presidents who served.

Really enjoyed our tour of this museum. Learned a lot about Admiral Nimitz and World War II. We were fortunate to visit when they had the live World War II demonstration. Highly recommend going if you are in the area.

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.
