I went here with my 48 year old son who really had no knowledge of WWII. He was at least as interested as I in the displays that depicted many of the important events that occured in the Pacific. I ran out of time because they ere closing. Next time I'm Fredericksburg I will definte go back (starting earlier) and see this museum again.

It had been almost 30 years since I went through the Nimitz museum and back then you could see everything in about 30 minutes. Like I said, it had been about 30 years and today, I was amazed how large the museum has grown and believe me, it would take a heck longer than 30 minutes to see everything. You can look at a minimum of a couple of hours if not more. It is well planned and gives you a history lesson before WW1 to WW2 and beyond. The exhibits and interesting if not amazing. It is well worth a visit of all ages within reason meaning 12 to 100.

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.

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.
