Worth a stop to learn about the admiral and see the building. It has several rooms with exhibits to the dated period

We only learned of this museum by accident - from a local we met in New Orleans! We are both very glad that we took the short detour north from Kerrville on the I10. Well worth a visit. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend in Fredericksburg. Warrior193.

Very thorough treatment of the war in in the Pacific. They have upgraded the museum, so if you haven't visited in a few years, it is a whole new experience!

It is overwhelming to see how many names and pictures are on the walls. The setting is serene and respectful as it should be. Thinking on how many sacrificed some or all of their lives is extremely emotional.

If you are interested at all in the history of WW11 in the Pacific Theatre, this is the place to see.

This is a small but very interesting museum. Lots of tidbits about Admiral Nimitz and about the area that were new to me. A good introduction to the WWII museaum.

A friend who flew in from California saw this museum and made a comment that there is a Nimitz freeway in CA named after this man. That generated an interest to visit the museum, so she could put a face to the name, It was a very educational tour. Admiral Nimitz was quite the military leader! Very down to earth... More

This is great in how they made it a detailed, but quick portion of the tour. I learned about Admiral Nimitz in 30 minutes as if I had read his biography. This man was a true American hero and worth the visit to pay tribute to him and all that sacrificed. To our surprise he was from Fredericksburg.

I loved this museum. My husband and I are history fanatics and we love to learn about not only the past, but the events that led up to the event in time that made the person who they were! Admiral Nimitz was a great Naval leader and patriot!

Their outdoor reenactment of a Pacific WWII battle was great! I appreciate the fact that they were trying to make us all feel like we were there, albeit in a safety zone. They demonstrated the fire power of all of the WWII weapons.
