During our stay at Lake Medina, we decided to drive to Fredericksburg and tour the National Museum of the Pacific War which is home of the Admiral Nimitz Museum. The Museum consists of five sections, the Admiral Nimitz Museum, the National Museum of the Pacific War George Bush Gallery, the Vetrans walk of honor and memorial walls, Japanese Garden of Peace, and the Pacific Combat Zone. The cost of the tour was $7 per adult. They do give discounts to vets and senior citizens. The George Bush Gallery is currently 20,000 sq. feet; however, this section will be closed June 1-Dec 7 of 09 as they are adding onto the museum. We really enjoyed our day and will go back to see all the additions.
The home of the Admiral Nimitz Museum used to be a hotel owned by the Nimiz family.
