“A Day at the Nimitz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Great place to learn a lot of history. Do not expect to see it in one day, could take several days, but so easy to find, can visit, go out to eat and come back and finish the day.

“From stranger to familiar friend in 25 minutes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Many of my questions about the history of the German people in Texas were answered in a few short minutes, and I got to know the family history, foibles, and facts about a great American in just a short time. Plenty of artifacts, pictures, and history to become acquainted with a man few of us know well.

“Not to be Missed Exhibits, Artifacts and Stories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

If you are in Fredericksburg, don't miss the Admiral Nimitz Museum. It contains amazing stories, exhibits and artifacts. Wonderful way to learn more about WWII and the Pacific combat zone. It contains real footage and radio messages along with the exhibits. It was extremely interesting.

The minimum amount of time you will want to spend is 2 to 4 hours. I think it would take a good 6 to 8 hours to see it all. The great news is that that tickets cover 48 hours which allows you to do so.

“Worthwhile visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Was staying in the area and my brother-in-law highly recommended going to this museum. There was so much history contained in this historic site and the associated monuments. Would recommend it to anyone who is visiting the area.
