Owner description: Formerly the Nimitz Museum, the complex is now America's only museum centered on World War II's Pacific campaign. Since 1968, the Museum has expanded to occupy a six-acre campus and gained a reputation as one of the premier military museums in the nation. Over the years the Museum was upgraded and enlarged, and the campus grew to accommodate the Memorial Courtyard, the Plaza of Presidents and the Japanese Garden of Peace. We opened the expanded George H. W. Bush Gallery in 2009. The Gallery's state-of-the-art 33,000 square foot exhibition features 40 media installations, approximately 900 artifacts in 97 climate-controlled cases, 15 macro-artifacts, and hundreds of photographs. Two blocks east of the main campus is the Pacific Combat Zone. Recently reopened after an $8 million renovation. The PCZ is also home to our popular WWII Pacific Combat Program that takes place on set weekends throughout the year.

It is easy to find and easy to navigate. Found the material presented beautifully! The two day ticket is quite a bonus, a few in our group did return following day to finish looking.

Amazed on how large the museum is and the number of exhibits to visit. Recommend visiting all three sites.

But you really really need to be in to the WWII thing. If not, you grow weary very soon. Luckily, it's on the street where there are tons of shops and restaurants to duck into.

This is a museum, spread across a number of adjacent sites, that is by a long way the most impressive attraction in Fredericksburg. The main museum that tells the story of the pacific war is exceptionally well laid out and uses photography, artefacts ( including aircraft ) and visual presentations to great effect. I thought it was factually presented without bias or prejudice leaving it to the visitor to make up their own mind about a wide range of challenging issues.

we enjoyed it immensely!!!! Our son was 9 when we came and he was even thrilled with it. Every time we go to Fredericksburg he tries to talk us into going again :) everyone of the staff were not only helpful, but full of knowledge and incredibly polite and friendly. we will be going back (just not every time) because we want to go to one of the reenactments!
