I took a good friend from Seattle here. This time I joined the museum. I should have done it the first time. The museum is well-organized and well-maintained. Each of the videos are excellent. I highly recommend watching them all.

Travelled to Fredericksburg especially to see the Pacific War Museum. Was not disappointed. The tickets are good for 2 days so take your time. The PT boat exhibit was very impressive. My husband and I will definitely be back.

I wish my dad could have lived longer to travel to places like this to see. It was very interesting and so much to learn what sacrifices our nation of men boys & women made to keep us safe,

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the museum and Combat Zone. It was very well put together, informative, and emotional. I highly suggest making this a must see in Fredericksburg.

I don’t remember. By far the best Museum I’ve been to. Also included is a Museum extension a walk down the street. You’ll see a U-2 war boat.
