The people of Fredericksburg are proud of their local war hero, Admiral Nimitz, as well they should be. This museum and war memorial are nothing short of spectacular. You could spend a full day just touring the Nimitz part of this museum. Then you continue...More

Admiral Nimitz was a most humble man and deferred his praise and leadership to those he commanded. This museum highlights his early upbringing in Fredericksburg, family history, and his career beginning at Annapolis to life after WWII. Worth your time to refresh this history. This...More

Takes a while to look and read all that is in this museum. Don't take small children they will become bored while you are trying to read everything.

There seems to be some confusion in the TripAdvisor reviews; there's effectively two museums on this site, the smaller devoted to home-town boy Admiral Chester Nimitz, the larger (much larger!) to the totality of the Pacific war. The smaller is a lovely little museum devoted...More

The museum requires 2 days to see everything and read the info at each exhibit. It is very interesting from a historic point of veiw, and provides some understanding for WWII.

Allow 4-5 hours and you can spend 2 days in this extensive museum. Few places to sit for a short rest.

The Museum is amazing. We extended our stay and took advantage of the two day ticket. Each exhibit was wonderful. As the daughter of a WWII Pacific theater Marine dad, it had special meaning. It is so important to remember the sacrifices and honor those...More
