Thought we would drop in for an hour and spent three hours and still need to go back. Excellent displays and clear explanations of the events. Will give you a much deeper appreciation for that time in history and the people who participated

The museum is actually 3 different properties, the Nimitz House, the George Bush Gallery and the Pacific Theater. You get 48 hours of access with your ticket. It is well worth your time to visit this fantastic museum.

We visited this museum several years ago and enjoyed the experience. They have added a new building and have painstakingly arranged the exhibits for a chronological flow of the events up to and after Dec. 7, 1941. The artifacts and the digital media bring history...More
