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

Neat addition to the War of the Pacific museum experience. Shows how Nimitz' small town life helped form his character.

I have visited twice in two years. Great museum with very informative employees. Make sure to leave enough time to spend almost an entire day if you like to stop, read, and take everything. Great place to take a school field trip.

I went here to kill time while waiting for my husband, and I was so fascinated that I ended up spending a couple of hours here. The displays were top-notch and appealed to me, even though I am not a history or military fan.

This museum is well worth the price of admission. Absolutely and incredible educational experience, and certainly more than you can absorb in one day. Don't miss the wall of honor outside. Saw my father's ship, the USS Bennington, displayed.
