Today, the museum includes exhibits on the life and career of Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, who commanded U.S. and allied naval forces in the Pacific War, and who was born right here in Fredericksburg.
It also includes displays of Allied and Japanese aircraft, tanks, guns, other artifacts and, the most moving of all, the personal stories of our troops.

The grounds also include a Memorial Courtyard, a Plaza of Presidents and a Japanese Garden of Peace.
All museum properties are accessible by wheelchair, and group tours and school groups are welcome. Tickets are good for 48 hours.
