This is a very historical informative place to visit. It covers all military aspects of the Pacific War. The books, novelty things, etc are great for gifts or memorial things to keep. Great walking tour. You can visit her in one or two days.

Plan a few hours maybe even an entire day if you really want to take full advantage of this facility. Included is The George H.W. Bush Gallery along with the Nimitz Museum. The Bush Gallery far surpassed my expectations. There is so much to learn about U.S. history an in particular WW I and what lead to WW II. I... More

Great way to learn about Admiral Nimitz before seeing the next door National War of the Pacific Museum. Learned a lot about our greatest WWII admiral.

I, personally, don't think it is suitable for children unless they are older and really interested in the war in the Pacific. Don't forget... More

Recently upgraded and re-done, you should spend hours inside the exhibit. All age groups will enjoy this, and almost all is inside, so don't worry about the weather.

A simply beautiful museum and extremely interesting. We thought we would end up skipping this part of the museum tour, but it was intriguing and was a great introduction to an amazing leader and the beginning of his legacy. Definitely start at this location when you visit the museum
