Two days and still didn't see all. This is a "must see" in Fredericksburg. It is remarkable that so many artifacts have been preserved.

The Museum of the Pacific in WWII is an amazing historic showcase that includes a small Japanese submarine, many monuments in the courtyard to the US Navy ships that served during the war, and a wonderful giftshop which offers videos, books and the usual paraphernalia of the souvenir type. On certain days of the week, there is a WW II... More

We visited this area while we were waiting for the pie shop to open. There is a lot of history to be learned here. Very neat!

Learned all about Admiral Nimitiz's family and the history of early Fredricksburg. There are many family photos and artifacts. The place is a little dark, but this is to protect the artifacts.

The Admiral Nimitz State Historic Museum is on Main Street in Fredericksburg, TX. It has a stream of visitors at any given time. The museum is full of historical memorabilia from the life of Adm. Nimitz. I've talked to others and they say they travel to Fredericksburg just to visit this museum.

It's worth the time if you are in Fredricksburg, but not worth making it a "destination" trip. I learned a little, and enjoyed what they had.

The Nimitz by itself is not much to see. A nice quick history lesson on the life of Admiral Nimitz, which is fascinating. A good place to buy combo ticket because the crowd is smaller than at the war museum. It will only take about 20 minutes to see this part, but if you add in the war museum and... More

I lived in a Navy town when I was younger and often saw the USS Nimitz come into port. I am glad I went through the Nimitz museum . Now I understand the honor of having a warship named after a great man. The museum displays range from childhood to after retirement and his ribboned career in the Navy. Because... More

I visited the Admiral Nimitz and Pacific War museums. I sent two hours there and could have spent at least another hour or two. Well worth the time and money!
