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.

One of the best interactive museums we've ever seen. The historic hotel is the beginning of the story of Admiral Nimitz life. You will need several days to see it all!
