  • We visited the Pacific War museum while in Fredericksburg, and we were all very impressed. When I first visited the museum twenty years ago the collection was confined to a two story frame house. Now ...  more »
  • As others have said this is an excellent museum. There really is so much to see that visiting over two days makes sense if you have the time.  more »

  • Museum was absolutely fantastic. The amount of detailed information, the displays and videos were beyond top rate. Was there only 3 hours and I've got to go back to see more. As a student of WWII history I have seen many of the photos before, but not altogether in one place, displayed with such professional quality.
  • One of the very best museums on WWII I have ever seen. Planes, tanks, torpedoes, submarines everything is so well preserved and lovingly displayed. The Japanese garden and memorial area are beautiful. What a fitting tribute to our lost heroes! The curators did not miss a single detail. I highly recommend!
