The Bob Hope Traveling Exhibit at the Nimitz Museum
15 MAY 2015 - 15 SEPTEMBER 2015

A very special exhibit about the life of Bob Hope will visit the Nimitz Museum from May 15, 2015 until September 15, 2015. The Bob and Delores Hope Foundation, along with the World Golf Hall of Fame, have produced a 2,000 square foot traveling exhibit about Bob Hope and his varied life, including his many USO trips to the Pacific. This exhibit includes more than 700 vintage photos, seven videos, more than 170 artifacts, an audio tour and a special educational program to enable children to understand better what they are viewing.


Bob Hope was a great admirer of Admiral Chester Nimitz and a strong supporter of the Admiral Nimitz Foundation and Nimitz Museum. He came to Fredericksburg in 1976 to attend a fundraiser to save the old Nimitz Hotel. He also served as an Honorary Trustee until his death.


This will be a unique exhibit which will be enjoyable for all ages. The Museum and Foundation are especially honored to be able to present this exhibit since only 16 facilities have been selected to host this rare and fascinating exhibit. Additional information will be available on the Museum's website and in the next issue of the newsletter.

This exhibit is free to the public. A museum ticket is not needed.
