The site is full of history both informational and tactile. Lots of exhibits. Any history buff would find this of exceptional value. Young folks will find out details that were never taught in school.

A fine place to learn about German immigrants to Texas, the story of the Nimitz family including Adm. Nimitz, and gain a greater knowledge and understanding of the Pacific Theatre of WW2.

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

This is one museum in a complex of three museums. This is dedicated to Nimitz who was born here and was an important figure in WWII. It covers his life and career nicely and is well worth a visit. It is housed in the hotel...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
