The National Museum of the Pacific War is a national treasure. Our $12 admission gave us full access to all aspects of the Nimitz Museum complex for two days and we could have easily spent two full days touring it. The tribute to Admiral Nimitz in the old Nimitz Hotel on Main Street is well-done and gives great insight to the Commander of the Pacific Fleet in WWII. The Japanese Garden of Peace, Memorial Courtyard, and Plaza of the Presidents are all top-notch, outdoor components of the museum and are well worth spending time exploring but the George H.W. Bush Gallery is a state-of-the art museum with interactive exhibits, thousands of artifacts, and, most moving of all, the voices of the men who served our country. This is truly an amazing exhibit. You will want to devote several hours to touring it. If you are lucky enough to be in Fredericksburg on the weekend of a WWII re-enactment, make sure to spend an extra hour or so learning about combat in the war zone.
