ABOUT THE MUSEUM
Originally named The Admiral Nimitz Museum and housed solely in the historic Nimitz Hotel, the National Museum of the Pacific War has grown into a dynamic, first-class experience that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and from all backgrounds. In addition to more than 50,000 square feet of indoor exhibit space, the museum boasts an impressive display of Allied and Japanese aircraft, tanks, guns and other large artifacts made famous during the Pacific War campaigns.
The National Museum of the Pacific War is the only institution in the continental United States dedicated exclusively to telling the story of the Pacific Theater battles of World War II. Located on a six-acre site, the Museum includes the George Bush Gallery, Admiral Nimitz Museum, Pacific Combat Zone, Plaza of Presidents, Memorial Courtyard, Japanese Garden of Peace, and (opening soon) the Nimitz Education and Research Center.
