National Museum of the Pacific War

Although the Second World War saw a great alliance of 26 nations stand against the Axis Powers, the war against Japan in the Pacific became primarily an American War. It was an event that proved America’s mettle, but changed it forever; and there was once a long list of names from the Pacific and East Asia that were indelibly etched in the consciousness of all Americans: Pearl Harbor, Bataan, Corregidor, Midway, Guadalcanal, Leyte Gulf, the Burma Road, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Hiroshima, Arizona, Yorktown, Indianapolis, Arisan Maru, Enola Gay. To know the epic story of the Pacific War is to be humbled, and at the same time inspired and strengthened, by the magnitude of that generation’s sacrifice and triumph. The National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, Texas, is the only institution in the United States dedicated exclusively to telling the story of the Pacific and Asiatic Theaters in World War II. The complex includes The National Museum of the Pacific War, The George Bush Gallery, The Admiral Nimitz Museum, The Japanese Garden of Peace, The Pacific Combat Zone, The Plaza of the Presidents, The Surface Warfare Plaza, The Memorial Wall, The Veterans Walk of Honor and the Center for Pacific War Studies. Open daily 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Closed: Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas
