Connected to the Museum Of The Pacific War, this tells the story of the Fredericksburg boy who grew to lead all U.S. Naval Forces in The pacific Theatre. It is a living testament to courage, honour, duty, country.

Nice old building but the exhibit was short and not too great. Only plus is that the price of admission is included with the WWII museum admission price.

If you like WWII history, this museum is for you. It takes a full day or more but your tickets are good for 48 hours. It’s one of the most comprehensive exhibits on the Pacific theater. Very well done!

A very sobering and somber experience. One will trully understand the sacrifices that others have made for their freedom and how easy it is to loose.

The Nimitz Museum is a complete history lesson with lots of props. It is huge; so please plan to spend several days there. It is too much to absorb in one afternoon. The tickets give access for several days. The reenactment is absolutely fantastic--extremely well-done....More
