“Uncommon valor was a common virtue.” Fleet Admiral Nimitz’s words in 1945 ring true today as we tell the sweeping story of World War II in the Pacific. This is the story — the history — we are dedicated to honoring, teaching and preserving at The National Museum of the Pacific. Visit us to experience this extraordinary chapter of our nation’s history.

On June 3, 1942 Admiral Nimitz received word that Japanese forces were close to Midway. He relayed this information to his carrier forces and added the dire warning, “That is not repeat not the enemy striking force—stop— That is the landing force. The striking force will hit from the northwest at daylight tomorrow.”
