The National Museum of the Pacific War’s Nimitz Jr. Corps introduces youth to the values, innovations, and experiences of our Greatest Generation. Through fun games, exhibit exploration, art, and science the Nimitz Jr. Corps aims to create the next generation of history enthusiasts, museum stewards, and good citizens.  


Have you ever wondered what makes a bomb drop and how they can hit a target from so far away? Find out by joining the Nimitz JuniorCorps on Saturday April 21. Children ages 8-13 are invited to come break secret code, get an up close look at some authentic WWII weapons, and learn how to maneuver a minefield. We will also take some time to understand the human toll of war. Nimitz Jr. Corps is from 1:00pm-5:00pm and is free of charge. Participation is limited so please register by contacting Barbara Ford at 830-997-8600 ext. 225.
