Really enjoyed this national museum of the Pacific War. Inside and outside were wonderfully designed. The pictures and the tour of that time really draws you into the history of WWII. Start early in the morning and don't rush through as there is so much to see.
If you do the Admiral Nimitz museum after the Pacific War Museum, it doesnt compare much. It is entirely about the admiral from Fredericksburg and his emtire life. He was a very key player in the war, however. There is good information, but not much on artifacts, which I like more of.
I'm truly not into history but it was the hubby's birthday and he wanted to visit. I was amazed at the museum. Everything was well done and I actually enjoyed it. Took most of the afternoon but they'll let you leave and come back. We took a lunch break and finished up afterwards. It's not free. Adults are $14.00 and... 更多

A two-day entry ticket is great. You need at... 更多

There are a lot of family artifacts and the old building, once a busy hotel, is really... 更多
Definitely worth seeing. The information here is a nice prelude that goes nicely with the Pacific War Museum. I would definitely recommend visiting this place first then going onto the other sites.
Check in here first, to buy your Museum pass and learn about Admiral Nimitz's childhood. This site was a hotel in the late 1800-s and early 1900's. Great background on the area and the German settlers of the area.
