  • Everything was well done. The entire experience is great. Tons of information is provided. They recommended taking two visits to see the entire museum. I would definitely agree with that.  more »
  • A very well done and thorough review of the Pacific War and Adm. Nimitz. Visitors may be overwhelmed with information. Unfortunately part of the museum is closed as are a number of 'hands on...  more »
  • My husband loved this!!! There are three different sections. Reservations are required to ensure social distancing. Very informative and much larger than when we visited 20 years ago. If you like...  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!
  • Amazing history, fantastic displays, it is no understatement it can take 4 hours to see everything. Tickets good for 48 hours...you may need the 2 days. Done in good taste with unknown factoids for a deeper understanding of the history. Patriotism is reignited when seeing the greatest generations history.
  • Very informative - I wish all rooms were opened, but it was during renovation. I do not recall if there was a discount because of that. Great anyway. Reportedly in Japan the story is slightly different. I will see for myself if there will be discounted flight to Okinawa on my trip to Japan.
  • The guys doing the reenactments are so dedicated. I learned so much watching them and following the tour. On the other side there are actual artifacts, emotional letters home from soldiers, and educational exhibits. Truly a must see if you're in town.
