If you are a war history buff, you will be in heaven here. The museum can take at least half a day to tour. We did not plan accordingly and only spent a couple of hours. It is very informative and excellently done!

We visited the museum in Fredericksburg and it was very interesting! It was far more detailed and high quality than we expected. Plan at least 2-3 hours to be able to see everything.

What a great museum we totally lost track of time. Displays were very interesting and informative. Very thought provoking on what it was like to have lived through it. Well worth the time taken to read the displays and listen to the stories.

We received free tickets so we decided to visit on the 4th of July. It was a very informative trip. The exhibits were nicely placed throughout the museum. The courtyard had such history and I loved the displays. Very nice.

Its great Value when in effect this is two museums in one. This wonderful building is where the original Pacific War Museum was located before it expanded to include three museums on a 6-acre campus, nearby.  A landmark in Fredericksburg since the late 1800's, the...More
