What a great museum we totally lost track of time. Displays were very interesting and informative. Very thought provoking on what it was like to have lived through it. Well worth the time taken to read the displays and listen to the stories.

We received free tickets so we decided to visit on the 4th of July. It was a very informative trip. The exhibits were nicely placed throughout the museum. The courtyard had such history and I loved the displays. Very nice.

Not to much to see in this museum, could be a little bit more explored. I would normally recommend this museum alone but you need to combine with the Pacific museum

My husband and I viewed this house as part of the pacific war museum tour. If you're nerdy like us, you will enjoy the history and life of admiral Nimitz. Nice A/C break from walking around Main Street, too!
