Fodor's Review

Dedicated solely to telling the story of the Pacific battles of World War II, this museum is the only one of its kind in the nation, and is a popular attraction for history buffs and the mildly curious alike. Originally the museum was the Admiral Nimitz Museum, named after Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, who is famed for successfully halting the Japanese advances after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Today the museum has grown to include the George Bush Gallery, the Plaza of Presidents, Veterans' Walk of Honor, Japanese Garden of Peace, Pacific Combat Zone, and the Center for Pacific War Studies. In its more than 45,000 square feet of exhibit space the museum exhibits both Allied and Japanese airplanes, tanks, and guns among its numerous displays.
