I enjoyed visiting this place but don't get your expectations up. Certainly if you are a Nimitz fan, it is worth visiting along with the Pacific War Museum. This site is worth a walk through and it is interesting, but not a must see.

You do not hear a lot about Admiral Nimitz but after you visit this site and the Museum of the Pacific you gain great insight into a true hero of WWll.

This was a very interesting and fun environment for my children and my young son learned quite a few intriguing things about a time frame of his great grandfather and what it meant for his military service and understood it better. Thank you.

Great place for anyone to visit and brouse around for a short visit but great place for any history buff to spend hours. Excellent set up and sources of history.

An interesting museum that sets up the main event -- the Pacific War Museum by providing a good overview of Admiral Nimitz's life.

If you are a war history buff, you will be in heaven here. The museum can take at least half a day to tour. We did not plan accordingly and only spent a couple of hours. It is very informative and excellently done!

We visited the museum in Fredericksburg and it was very interesting! It was far more detailed and high quality than we expected. Plan at least 2-3 hours to be able to see everything.
